Description

Photograph of the William Warnick Homestead. This house, seven miles southwest of Decatur, was built by William Warnick after 1833, and became known as the "Thirty-Three Mile House" when owned by John Eckle and used as part of his tavern property to serve travelers. Abraham Lincoln probably was a guest at this house several times as he was riding the circuit during the time the house was used as a tavern or inn. It is located on the old Terre Haute-Springfield road and is thirty-three miles from Springfield.
