Today's fence has historical significance. The first courthouse in Cumberland County, in which Abraham Lincoln once lost a case and then pardoned the man after he became Governor, burned on 11/5/1885. It is widely believed to have been arson. The courthouse was rebuilt and is still conducting business to this day. It sits in the center of town square.
There is a photo of the old building hanging in the entry hall of the current courthouse, which shows a fence encompassing the courthouse lawn. It isn't there anymore, guess I assumed it was taken down during re-building. But what happened to that fence? I recently found out it was moved to the cemetery. It separates the property line to the south.
Last weekend I took some pictures of that really old fence.
