  • Nice stop while traveling through Interstate 65 in Kentucky. While in the visitor center you can view quite a bit of history and look through the photos and antiques such as the Lincoln Family Bible. ...  more »

  • Had a wonderful experience here. Our daughter loves Lincoln, it is her favorite president. They have the junior ranger program here. The staff is wonderful, insightful and very helpful. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. There is a lot of rich history here, even things they don't teach you in school or mainstream history. They focus more on Lincoln's growing up there with only brief snippets of any other part of his life. This is great because more focus could go into this particular part of his history.
  • Looking at the sites where young Abraham learned to take his first steps was very interesting. Seeing how they lived and the land the occupied helped me understand the history. There you can take a short tour and see a cabin built in the years in which Abraham and his family lived in the area (around 2 years). The cabin (which is period original and like the one he lived in) is kept inside a larger building for preservation purposes. From there you can drive to the site where young Abraham lived from the age of 2 until he was around 9 years old. It is 15 minutes away and the route follows the route they followed on the move. I highly recommend you visit both.
