A federal state park facility, it recognizes the fact that Lincoln was born in a small backwater plot of land in Hodgenville, KY. There is a nice museum and the first Lincoln memorial. While the cabin contained in the memorial is not original, it is a fair representation. Note that during the pandemic, you can’t actually walk around the inside of the memorial. There are other trails in the park, where you can walk around and burn off breakfast. Recommended

Lovely grounds that are kept in pristine shape. The memorial is beautiful. You can see only the back of the cabin inside the memorial, although this is worth a look. The movie was informative.

It has been 35 years since I have visited here. The new visitor center is lovely. The grounds are still well kept and easy to walk. This is the first Lincoln Memorial opened by President Taft. There is symbolism in the building and stairs housing the Lincoln cabin. It is definitely worth a visit if you are going south on I-65.

There is a replica of the log cabin were Lincoln was born. You can only see one side of the cabin. The movie in the visitors center was good.

We took our 9 year old grandson and it was a beautiful park. We went in building that had some stuff and watch a movie about Lincoln's life. They have a nice little gift shop.We then walked to the memorial with was nice. If you are traveling a good distance I would also see the Lincoln Museum also in Hodgenville to make it worth the drive.
