At this time it is under renovations and is closed to the public. The entire site is not open at this time. However, the birthplace is open a few miles down the road for viewing.

Closed when we went to visit. Parking lot is all torn up and they are doing "renovations" this summer. We also found out from the birth site area that this was also a mistaken cabin touted to be Lincoln's, but was a neighbor's cabin instead.

To enter into a cabin where someone from long ago stayed as a child and to see the creek and land where he played and farmed at was amazing and for my child to enjoy and learn something also was also great.

Since we were in the area, visiting Abe Lincolns Birthplace, we thought we'd go a few miles down the road to visit his childhood home at Knob Creek. TRAVELERS BEWARE.......park is closed for unknown length of time....so better check the web site first! Since I live over a thousand miles away, I won't have an opportunity to visit this place...

Surprised that Lincoln once lived in Indiana. Loved all the history on the walking tour and they also showed a film at the reception center

We drove by in February 2015. This looks like it would be an interesting place to visit, but it is closed to visitors for most or all of 2015 while it undergoes renovation. Put it on yout list for a visit next year.

This was really neat to visit and just feel history around you. It's always cool to see how such a great historical figure lived. This is a nice open area for children to run around in and the area is really beautiful.

This was not easy to find but worth a quick visit to get a feel for where Lincoln spent his boyhood years. The cabin on the site is original to the family of his boyhood friend, Austin Gollaher. You can enter the cabin and look around, run through the fields and go down to the creek. Knowing that Lincoln would... More

this is part of Abe Lincoln birthplace. He lived here for 5 years. The Rangers were friendly. Kids can do the jr ranger program. The original birthplace is about 7 miles away. This is a 1 hour visit. See knob creek and a log cabin. The cabin is not Abe Lincolns original. It is of a neighbors. Walk where Abe... More
