Artist's Description

Old Main at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois, completed in 1857.

In 1858, Old Main was host to the fifth of seven debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in their senatorial contest. It is the only extant site of those debates, and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.

For a fascinating account of the architectural significance of Old Main, please see Prof. R. Lance Factor’s account in Chapel in the Sky: Knox College’s Old Main and Its Masonic Architect
