Located in Lincoln City, Indiana this is a fascinating experience. Abraham Lincoln lived here from age 7-21. This is where his mother & sister died. His mother, Nancy is buried here & you can learn all about her poisonous death. Here you will find a living historical farm & visitors center. The outside of the center has beautiful reliefs carved on it. Inside you will see memorabilia & an actual cabinet that Lincoln's father made. There are also two large "halls". President Kennedy signed the proclamation to make this Indiana's first National Park.

The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is one of the less impressive historic sites. It is a pay park. $10 per family. It consists of a small museum the with two wings and an outside park area where the cabin he lived in location is laid out.

We decided to hike to the Lincoln Boyhood National Monument during our stay at the campground. We expected a quick stop on our hike, but it turned into our whole afternoon. The staff was very friendly and we learned a lot at the farm. Great trip!

I am on a solo road trip stopping at as many national parks as possible. This one has been on my radar for quite some time. Impressive visitor center, beautiful ground and a legacy that is treasured. I was disappointed to see all the visitors driving the property. You will not get the same experience if you drive. It is only half mile and if you drive you will not see the 12 stones trail.

There is a lot of information here and a great part of our American history. Learn about Ab Lincoln and his parent. Learn about the life of the family that moved here when he was just a young lad. If you are in the area, don't leave without visiting. It is worth the time.
