Like the Lincoln statue at New Salem State Park, this one by Fred M. Torrey depicts Lincoln choosing between his axe and a book. The inscription on the eight-foot bronze figure reads, "At twenty-one I came to Illinois." The state of Illinois presented the statue to Macon County as a symbol of Lincoln's early association with the area. The Lincoln family arrived from Indiana in 1830 and built a cabin by the Sangamon River. The statue was erected on the Millikin University campus in 1948 and faces West Main Street.
