Visitor Tips and News About Giant Abe Lincoln
Not that great -- easy to miss and hard to access from the interstate.[Katie, 01/01/2014]
Previously submitted but now I have a photo for you. Abe Lincoln faces south alongside Interstate 57. He's north of the road and west of the Rt.50 interchange (I-57, a generally N/S road is running E/W briefly here). He's at a business that rents or sells construction manlift machines. Since my prior sighting he's now done up as Abe Lincoln. Photo from moving car. Will get a better one when I figure out how to get to it other than stopping on the interstate.[Steve Kraus, 05/25/2006]
Abe Lincoln, who manlifted slaves from human bondage.
Here is a really large Lincoln. He can be found traveling North on I-57 toward Chicago, at the 316 mile marker, very near the Kankakee exit. Looks like he may have been holding something in his left hand at one time...probably an ax. So there you have it.[Erika Gray, 09/06/2004]
