New owners to renovate historic home


DANVILLE, Ill. (WCIA) — A family that’s new to the area is looking to renovate a historic home.

The Harmon Mansion on East Main Street was built around 1850 on a 30-acre farm and was owned by an attorney and friend of Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln is said to have once visited for Thanksgiving. The family says they’re planning to live there and restore it at the same time.
