In 1858 Abraham Lincoln became the owner of this lot across from the Logan County Courthouse. The 523 Pulaski St. site is where Sherwin-Williams stands today. The first of a series of markers to identify Abraham Lincoln sites throughout Logan County was unveiled there Tuesday. Lloyd Ostendorf paintings are featured in the markers.

The Logan County Railsplitting Association sponsored this marker in memory of Lester O. Sheridan. Historian Paul Beaver said that Sheridan was a man who had dedicated his life to making the connection of Abraham Lincoln to the city of Lincoln and Logan County known. 

Pictured (left to right) are members of the Logan Railsplitting Association and others: John Sutton, Ron Keller (Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Committee), Gwen Tibbs, Daris Knauer, Lauren Harmon (manager of Sherwin-Williams), Paul Beaver, Darlene Begolka (association president), Geoff Ladd, Charlie Ott and Diana Pagel.          [picture by Jan Youngquist] click on picture for larger image
