According the the online information this facility was showing to be open to the public but when we arrived it was closed. We then went to the Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and that was where we learned it was closed due to renovation until later...More
Because we were close, I wanted to see his boyhood home. It was raining all day but we went into the visitor center and they had a brief history of Abe. A beautiful path through the trees to the monument that holds a house to...More
The site is easy to find, right off of the main road in the area.
The grounds were well maintained, the (replica) buildings seemed authentic enough (to my untrained eye).
There were plenty of informative signs that were easy to locate.
Overall well worth a...More
Don’t go here is you’re expecting a great deal of information on Lincoln’s childhood. The house is a replica of a log cabin in which he lived as a child. No guide, nor information. We literally stepped out of the car, walked around the log...More
This was neat to say that I have seen it, but that is all. It's basically just an unmanned, open field. There are two markers and his friend's home there. Having gone to his birthplace first, I knew what I was seeing after watching the...More
This is a self guided tour. When Abraham was about two years old, they moved to this house (about two miles away from birthplace). You will see fields were family planted food, the stream they got water. It is free.
I think we missed out on our visit here. It wasn’t planned and as spur of the moment things sometimes turn out...we were there when the visitors’ center was already closed and it was getting close to dusk. We wandered around a bit and read...More

Drove out of my way to visit Lincoln's birthplace cabin and his boyhood home. It was raining on this particular day and people were driving up and taking a picture from their car and going on their merry way, thinking this was Lincoln's boyhood home....More

I "googled" the information, and according to what I saw this site is still closed. You can, however, visit the BIRTHPLACE of Abe Lincoln, which is only a couple of miles away. That Park really is worth the time to see. You can check out my review on it. Also, perhaps you could ask the part officers if they have any info on when the boyhood home site will open. Then, if they know, you could post the info on Trip Advisor for the rest of us! Have a wonderful trip, and I know you will love the Birthplace Park.
