I didn't know that Lincoln spent most of his childhood in Indiana. Really nice memorial. Nice trail that has twelve stones all related to historic sites from Lincoln's life. As always the park staff was very helpful. You need to watch the video to get a good grasp of Lincoln's life here.

Loved the outside of the Visitors center:) The quotes of Lincoln carved into the walls on the outside of the building before entering were inspiring:) MUCH information about the GREATEST President of all time inside:) The ranger was helpful:) You can drive to get to a few spots of what the park offers. Yet, I suggest walking up to the largest flag pole in ANY national park:) and taking the trail to all the sites, it’s a easy 1/2 mile walk at best:) Information galore

Impressive memorial and impressive video and information here. Lots of photos and great staff here. We learned a lot and also had a great walk up to the cemetery and through the woods. Being October the farm site was not in operation but we were still able to see the buildings and homesite. Very enjoyable visit.

I really did not know much about Lincoln's early life. His family moved to Indiana for more economic opportunity. His father bought a farm. The farm has been recreated. There is an easy walk up a short hill past his mother's grave site. His mother died of milk fever obtained from cow's milk when cow's eat snake root. His father remarried and he had step brothers. The farm has chickens and cows and a garden.
