With the visitor center and cabins closed due to covid, I wasn't sure it would be worth my while to visit the memorial recently, but I'm so glad I made the trip. There are still many serene country trails to wander here, meaningful Lincoln sites to see and autumn color was close to peak. I hope to return when all the facilities are open, during one of the planned events, but if I don't have the chance, I'll still hold dear the memory of the days I spent here.

First of all, if you are considering going then please do! The area is so much more impressive than I could imagine. Visiting President Lincoln’s mother’s burial spot was so humbling.

We have been to Santa Claus a number if times but had no idea this place was so close. The actual monument is really cool showing his time in all the states he lived in. Inside there is a museum to go through. On the grounds you can walk to his mother's grave site. This was a neat stop.

A chapel, stunning in its simplicity, connected in horseshoe fashion by a small museum and gift shop to the similarly stunning Mary Hanks Lincoln Hall with its magnificent hearth, captures not only some of the interiority of Lincoln but also of our nation.

Second time to visit. Perfect day for taking the trail walk down the the Lincoln replica log home. Animals and burial site of Nancy Hanks Lincoln. Also watched a short video inside the memorial area. Gives you a picture of Lincoln's early life and the size of his cabin. Makes you appreciate your home when you see the rustic size of his.
