There is nothing original to Lincoln's time spent on this farm anymore, although they never come right out and say that anywhere. I read through everything they had trying to determine if the large building was the original house (it was a tavern built in...More

The original cabin of Abe Lincoln is down the road a ways from the Lincoln National Park. It was moved from the park and rebuilt on site where it is said his home was. it is larger than the replica at the park. Interesting.

A interesting visit to a log cabin and the first place Lincoln really remembered. Easy parking and just off the road with nice clean restrooms makes a very nice stop. Perfect for dog walkers and history buffs! Also the site is totally free.

After visiting the birthplace of Lincoln, I drove about 10 miles to see his boyhood home. From what I read, back in those days, landlines criss-crossed and that was the reason the Lincolns had to move to this area. Their land was actually sitting on...More
