Illinois - Lincoln Depot

Springfield, IL - When Lincoln left Springfield to start his inaugural journey on February 11, 1861, he paid an unforgettable tribute to his friends and neighbors known today as the Farewell Address. Lincoln spoke these famous words as he boarded a special Presidential train at the Great Western Railroad station, now a restored Lincoln visitor site.

Following a major renovation and rehabilitation effort, the Depot reopened in early 2013. The first floor houses a self-guided museum while the second story exists as the Noll Law Office. In 2014 the Depot was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

We invite you to learn more about the history, view pictures and video, and visit the place where Lincoln's feet last touched Springfield.
