(CNN) -

The largest gavel was unveiled in Illinois last week.

This massive piece now sits outside of the Clark County courthouse in Marshall.

It's 66 feet high, 17 feet long and 36 feet wide.

The whole thing is made out of red oak.

The giant gavel was built to honor the long legal history of the Clark County courthouse. 

The courthouse is one of the places where President Abraham Lincoln practiced law.
