VFW Post 1756 sits on a very historic site in Lincoln. That area
was once the site of the Deskins Tavern. Once Postville Courthouse
was built, many of the lawyers and judges would stay at the Deskins
Tavern, taking meals and socializing. A sign commemorating this
historic significance is located on the property.
Also, a new sign
for the well that sits on site was recently erected through a
partnership between Main Street Lincoln and the Abraham Lincoln
Tourism Bureau of Logan County. The well at Postville was built in
the early 1840s and was the only well in the area. It was restored
in 2003 with a new wood platform and a replica of the hand pump.
The VFW members are proud to be a part of the Abraham Lincoln
birthday celebrations and invite the public to join them for this
great meal. The VFW has plans to host more dinners throughout the
year. For more information, call 217-735-1756.
