We were the only people around. Had the place to ourself. Right by the road and parking. Tiny hut, but glad we visited to learn the history of Lincoln.

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 "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... More
