  • This attraction is definitely smaller and more simple that the Abe Lincoln birthplace historic park. By itself it would not be worth the trip, but since it's only 20 minutes away from the much bigger ...  more »
  • Stopped by on a history road trip. Nicely restored and maintained buildings. Just one stop along the trail of Lincoln. If you enjoy history stop by.  more »
  • While it's not the original cabin, it is very close in size and design and on the original site. The cabin is located along a highway which was a fairly busy byway in Lincoln's time but otherwise in a...  more »

  • This is a great treasure of our historical past. Visiting this small valley and making the 1.4 mile hike to the overlook is a wonderful treat. If you can visit before 9am you'll probably have the whole place to yourself and might see a deer or two. You certainly will see plenty of squirrel, birds and depending on the time of year mosquito's. There is not much to do beyond the walking trail and meandering around the field in the depression of the valley. Make the drive 15 or so miles north to Lincoln's birthplace or 4 miles north to the Railroad Museum in New Haven. If you have time for a very relaxing visit check out the Abbey of Gethsemani about 10 miles to the Northeast.
  • Nothing is open, but can view a replica of the log home from the exterior. Good hiking trails. You really get a good feel for what it was like on the farm when Lincoln was growing up. Good restroom facilities.
  • Well worth the short drive after visiting Lincoln’s Birthplace. Here, you will see the beauty of the area, and if you try hard enough, you can just imagine what the area looked like during Lincoln’s childhood and the farm that he and his father labored. There is a 3 mile rough and somewhat strenuous trail leading to an overlook of the area. There’s not a lot here to see compared to some of the other sites, but it’s well worth the short drive. Don’t miss out!
  • Just happened to be passing by in route to a job site on a misty morning. Super cool to stop by and check out. I can't wait to come back again one day when work isn't top priority.
  • The kids enjoyed running around the property and playing near Knob Creek. Beautiful area to imagine growing up in.
