The final design isn't quite complete yet, but Wills says part of the building overhaul means turning the front section of the building into a working dry goods store, similar to the one that was run by a local businessman back in the 1840's. They're also planning to move the Lincoln law office to the south end of the building where historians believe Lincoln's office was actually located. President Lincoln practiced law at the downtown offices before he served in Congress.
