The Lincoln Building, as it is called today, is a Federal-style structure built in 1833 by William Everhart (1785-1868), a former Congressman, philanthropist and prominent borough resident. The Lincoln Building is considered West Chester's first office building; that is, it offered no residential units. At five-stories, it was one of the tallest in West Chester. It is located at the corner of Market Street and Wilmont Mews, two of the original streets in West Chester.
On February 11, 1860, the first biography of Abraham Lincoln was published in West Chester. It helped launch Lincoln's presidential campaign which eventually got him elected as the 16th president. See the remarkable story of this historic event.
