State Historic Site

Bryant Cottage was built in 1856 by Francis E. Bryant (1818 - 1889), a friend and political ally of Senator Stephen A. Douglas. According to Bryant family tradition, on the evening of July 29, 1858, Douglas and Abraham Lincoln conferred in the parlor of this house to plan the famous Lincoln - Douglas Debates.The picturesque one-story, four-room wood frame cottage has been restored and is interpreted as an example of middle-class life in mid-nineteenth-century Illinois.
