The Lincoln Bank Ledger

Springfield, Illinois

Ledger.

Loopiest Lincoln Landmarks.

The Lincoln Tomb and lavish Lincoln Presidential Museum may get the attention in Springfield these days, but just a few blocks away is this free and underappreciated landmark. The lobby of a bank displays a bank ledger with Lincoln's account in it. How much did that ham hock cost, anyway? Now you know. In a new era demanding transparency and fiscal responsibility, the Lincoln Ledger speaks for itself.

The souvenir Lincoln grabber head gapes in wonderment.
