A life-size statue of a young Abraham Lincoln stands outside the 1875 Livingston County Courthouse in Pontiac. Lincoln often practiced law in town as a young lawyer while traveling the Eighth Judicial District in the early to mid-1840s.
Three swinging pedestrian bridges span the Vermillion River at various points near downtown; the oldest bridge, stretching from Humiston-Riverside Park to Play Park, was built in July 1898 to help factory workers living on the south side of the river get to work on the north side.
