Central Illinois Photo Tag

Here's a photo tag series for Central Illinois area. I'd like to break it in to two parts. The first part might not be that hard, and the second part will only require a little adventurous spirit.

Part 1: Determine the significance of the primary object in the photo below. Hint 1: The name of the man on the plaque.
Hint 2: The photo was taken in Champaign County, but most of the visible scenery is in Piatt County.

When someone figures out Part 1 post as many useful details as you can to inform Part 2.

Part 2: Once Part 1 is solved it's tag time. My tag represents the starting point. The second person to post their tag determines if we are going clockwise or counter clockwise (another hint), and whether or not we require snapping the previous tag or just going to the next.

Have fun and be safe!

Pretty sure I know where that's at. But I'd have to ride out to verify it.

Lincoln Heritage Trail marker, but where I know where it is, maybe tomorrow if I can sneak out I will prove it. Not sure what you mean about clocks, and I dunno what I would pick for the next tag, so someone else should probably beat me to it.

WOW! Way to confusing for me. So you can't just ride out get the tag and post the next? I always thought the "tag" threads should be about the ride. Just get people out and riding. But some seem to become a trivia contest or scavenger hunt. Hey your game your rules. I'll be lurking, if I see how it works I'll join in.

(and a bump to the top)

I could call it something other than "tag". Or depending on how things go someone might just turn it in to standard tag rules. We'll see how it evolves

Okay so much for the scavenger hunt. Let's switch this over to classic tag rules to see if we can get things moving.

For anyone who was curious: The object in my tag is a historical marker. It is one in a series marking county boarders and seats on a trail ridden by Lincoln and other lawyers. I guess they would travel the route twice a year and hear cases within the district.

There are maps online of the original route and descriptions of the marker locations. I was thinking about trying to track them all down.

I will get in on this as soon as I can. I need reasons to jettison off once in a while. I have a few over this way too.

I'm with you.So I'll just follow along and join in once I get it.

Maybe Bigbore will explain it to me........ That guy is a genius!

What if we just went by "regular" rules so this can be not dead?

You folks give up on tag?

Lincoln's Circuit Court route -Champaign County road 1675 at the Piat County line. This photo was taken from the Piat County side looking back into Champaign.

New Tag


Stick with the Lincoln Circuit Court theme. They say have stayed here when he traveled the 8th Circuit. Coles County. See if you can find it without hints.

Another One

Hey Squishymonster,

I saw this one on the way home the other day and stopped to get it for you. On the Piatt/DeWitt county line.


I wondered if you wanted the whole set, so I went and got this one too. On the Champaign/Vermilion county line.

Well lets see, big list of rules to start with, then pictures of stuff that isn't the tag, then "See if you can find it without hints" I say it died before it started. Hard to RIDE to tag an obscure house in central IL.
