This place continues your journey with Abe Lincoln. The one part was not open the day we were there so we have no idea what was in there. The grandchildren looked in the cabin, then we walked down to the creek. They enjoyed knowing they were walking in Abe's footsteps. There are also very clean restrooms here and the cost... More

Fairly consistent for a National Park. Watch the movie, check out the museum and then go out on the trail to see some sites. You'll learn a lot no doubt about Abe and see some good sites. Nothing fancy or that will take too long

Just another stop on our Lincoln educational vacation. While this Lincoln home is fairly new to the NPS oversight, it is worth the stop only because of the close proximity to the other Lincoln home. The NPS rangers are knowledge on the topic and very helpful, but there is no visitor's center and only a small shack for them to... More

This is not that interesting in and of itself, but if you are already going to the Lincoln Birthplace anyway (which IS worthy of an hour) it's worth a quick (30 minute) stop here on your way to or from the Birthplace

This stop is worth the tome. Good to see where ole Abe grew up some in Kentucky. Nice little trail to Knob Creek. I didn't know that the Cumberland Trail came that far into Kentucky. Right by his home. Well worth the time to stop. I wish I could remember the ranger's name. She was very informative. Also, nice restroom... More

If you visited the Birthplace Monument and/or the Lincoln Museum and statue in the little town a few miles away, you'll generally find this as just another log cabin. Still, its an essential place to park for a quick, free visit of America's 16th President from when he was between two and seven years old. You'll also notice an abandoned... More

The 16th president of USA came from such humble childhood background. You can feel awed by the whole experience.

We visited the Lincoln birthplace memorial so decided to visit the boyhood home afterwards. It is located further north of the memorial and Hodgenville. A ranger is available at the site which has a cabin of a boyhood friend of Lincolns that was moved to this site. There is also a tavern that belonged to a family that bought the... More

I had no idea what this would be like when we stopped but I'm glad we stopped! The visitors center is so full of information and the Park Rangers were so interactive and informative. A replica log cabin stands protected on the grounds in the same place the Lincoln cabin stood. You can walk around it and look inside it.... More
