  • Very fun place to visit could spend all day just walking around the town and talking to the actors. Even after you get done in the town you can still go do alittle hiking in the trails they have around the site plus there places you can camp is you wanted to. Best little place
  • Lincoln fans should not miss this historic village where he spent six years of his life. Nice little museum and film located in the visitor's center.
  • Love historical places! Great learning experience for kids (and adults who wish they would've paid attention in school)!
  • Well maintained. Clean. Interesting. Free
  • Really good recreations. Upkeep is lacking in some areas but overall a really good experiance
