  • This is basically a field with a cabin on it. It depicts the site of the site of the farm when Lincoln lived here a young boy. This was where he farmed with his family. The creek in the back, the gard...  read more »
  • We were here in October and it was closed with no signs telling you about hours operation. Wasn't much to see but a replica of Lincoln's cabin but smaller scale.

  • We loved to enter the cabin and walk throughout the park's open spaces. The rangers are very welcoming and willing to share information about the place's history. Good compliment to the park that celebrates Lincoln's birth a few miles south.
  • A must see with the Lincoln birthplace memorial down the road. The cabin that Lincoln grew up in is not present but a real 1800s cabin from the landowner's propety is on site and interesting. What struck me was that the man who lived in that cabin saved young Abe from drowning in the creek nearby. How different would the US and nay the world be if he wasn't there to save the future president.
  • Not alot to see, but you can walk around the small area on a self-guided tour and see the farm area, creek he played in, etc... They also have a few trail markers and such.
  • Beautiful, historic location. Check out Knob Creek while you're there!
  • Fantastic history lesson for the parents and the kiddos.
