Abraham Lincoln shared offices on the third floor of this building at Sixth and Adams streets with two of his three law partners — Stephen T. Logan, 1843-44, and William H. Herndon from 1844 to 1860. The second floor housed the U.S. Court for Illinois. The left portion of the structure, known as the Tinsley Block, now is the Lincoln-Herndon Law Offices State Historic Site.
