Governor Oglesby Mansion

Meeting with a friend yesterday at this downtown Decatur landmark, I did not realize how rich in historic value this property truly is. The connection between Governor Oglesby, Abraham Lincoln and this house is quite unique. My visit was brief and I only saw the downstairs but we did throw around ideas for a future shooting opportunity. The mansion is open on Wednesday's from 1-4 PM. Admission is $2 upon which you receive a very thorough educational tour. More about this property can be found HERE.
