This project was done for Lincoln’s namesake community and it
will be the first statue of Abraham Lincoln on the courthouse lawn.
We thank the students, the organizations, the individuals, and all
who helped make this wish come true.
The last fundraising project involves Abraham Lincoln’s horse, ‘Old
Bob,’ a horse Mr. Lincoln rode as he traveled the 8th judicial
circuit. This last fundraiser is an opportunity for participants to
have their names recorded in our statute history book. Pictures,
news articles, records of events and listing of people’s names are
being captured and placed in the Logan County Genealogical and
Historical Society. As we come close to the finish line, the
committee is raising funds to help with the dedication and
maintenance of the bronze statue, “Lincoln Rallies the People”. Old
Bob has been recreated in an artistic miniature carousel horse that
can be seen at National Rent-To-Own.

Chances to win Old Bob will be sold, with the drawing to be
held on November 8. All individuals who purchase a chance will
be recorded in the statue history book. It is committee's
endeavor to have as many people as possible have their names
listed in the records.
In order to have your name listed and purchase a ticket, you may
