Description:

• PERMANENTLY CLOSED •
Built in 1968 to mark the 110th anniversary of a nearby Lincoln-Douglas debate, Lincoln stands with his hand raised, index finger pointed to the sky - probably in the middle of making a political point. He was built ultra-thin not only because he was quite slender in real life but because his limbs had to be driven by truck through areas with restrictions on wide loads.
