  • Great place to visit while my brother was visiting from out of state. We were greeted at the door by a kind gentleman who gave us a tour of the building and shared his knowledge of Lincoln's history in Mt Pulaski and Central Illinois.
  • Great place to visit in the center of this town on the prairie.
