John Pitcher's Law Office in Rockport was the first in Spencer County. He became Rockport's first City Attorney in 1818. He became interested in young Abe Lincoln and lent him books to read.

The Lincoln home was 17 miles north of Rockport and Abe often walked that distance to borrow or return a book.

These photos were taken May 11, 2002. The Pitcher cabin was not involved in the restoration project. It was rebuilt in the 1990's.
