Marshall – Illinois

While we were camping at Lincoln Trail State Park, we visited the town of Marshall, Illinois. This town has a very cute main street!

The Archer House is a hotel that was built in 1841 and Abe Lincoln was known to stay at this hotel when in town. Grover Cleveland also stayed here!

Marshall is also known for its’ various murals around town! We loved walking around the street blocks to find the murals! Here are a few we found!

Marshall also is home to the world’s largest gavel in front of the courthouse! Not too far away from Marshall is Casey, Illinois which holds several records for “largest” items! Check out my post on Casey!

Marshall is also home to the Stone Arch which was was part of the National Road and was built around 1830. The National Road was the most traveled road and helped bring settlers from the East Coast into the Midwest.

There is even two log cabins!

Dex loved the cabin!

Marshall is a very cute little town with a great state park, Lincoln Trail State Park near by! Check it out!
