LDN -- Top Stories

On  Wednesday representatives from the Route 66 Heritage Foundation, Looking For Lincoln, The Route 66 Scenic By-Ways, and the Lincoln Christian Church gathered in front of the Mill on Route 66 to announce a long lost Abraham Lincoln artifact has been found. Comments made by Geoff Ladd and Bill Kelley indicate that the plaque was found in a collection of items that had been donated to the Mill. The Mill has no idea who gave the donation, but Ladd said when they saw the plaque they knew right away that it had to be given back to the rightful owners - the Christian Church. The plaque testifies that in 1857 and 1858, after a fire destroyed the Logan County Courthouse, court was held at the church and that Abraham Lincoln heard cases in the church. The plaque will now be placed on display in the church.
