  • Being such a huge fan of President Lincoln, I was sad to learn it wasn't his actual boyhood home, but a home very much like his. His actual home was no longer there by the time they actually got aroun...  more »
  • There's not a lot here to see, but it's still well worth a stop for a bit of Lincoln history and to get an idea of what life was like back in the day. The lack of crowds also allows you to soak in the...  more »
  • This is the first place Lincoln remembers living. You can walk the same ground that he walked. The home there is not his home, and there isn't much to it. There is a walking trail around the place if ...  more »

  • Learned a lot about Lincoln that I was not aware of about his early life. The welcome center is excellent and the movie they show was most interesting. Walked the trails and they were all in good shape making hiking a pleasure.
  • 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.
  • hiking trail up the knob is wonderful, but a ranger told us it has not been maintained for several years. the valley is a flat, short, and enjoyable hike.
  • 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.
