Abe Lincoln Statue Survey
Lincoln, Illinois, is the first city in
the world named in honor of Abraham Lincoln. In fact, Abe christened
the city himself in 1853 with the juice from a watermelon. A group
is proposing to build a 305-foot-tall statue of Abe Lincoln.
Visitors will be able to travel to the top of the statue. A
restaurant is proposed in the top hat. Other attractions and a theme
park are being considered for the immediate area.
The status may not be constructed to
look the same as it's now being presented. This is a conceptual
design based on Lincoln's image as portrayed in Lloyd Ostendorf's
