Lincoln Trail State Memorial marks the location where, according
to tradition, Abraham Lincoln entered Illinois with his family in
early March, 1830.
The monument, sculpted by Nellie Verne Walker and dedicated in
1938, is a full-length bronze figure of Lincoln set within a sculptured
limestone wall panel that depicts three adults and two children
walking beside an ox-driven covered wagon, with an angel leading
them to their new home.
