Come away to a Petersburg, Illinois bed and breakfast and enjoy an area that is rich with this Nation’s history.
Petersburg is located in the Central Region of Illinois. This town is home to the Menard County Courthouse, which has on display some of Abraham Lincoln’s documents. Also in this area is the Lincoln Survey Point, where he began his survey of Petersburg. Other points of interest include the Menard County Historical Museum, Old City Cemetery (some plots date back to the 1830s), and the Ann Rutledge Grave. Petersburg offers many options for those who love the great outdoors including several golf courses, shooting ranges, and lots of wide-open space. This area is also known for its shopping scene, especially antiques. A short trip 2 miles south of Petersburg will bring visitors to a well-known historic site: Lincoln’s New Salem, a reconstruction of the place where Abraham Lincoln lived and worked as a young adult.
