  • Awesome place to go with your family or by yourself . Lots to do in a day. Staff is knowledgeable and nice. Great for locals or out of town visitors. Small hike to Lincoln's actual boyhood site very cool. Actors are there on site to talk and explain what life would have been like back then. Def a great stop.
  • This is such A wonderful park. So serene and historical. Plenty of trails for exercise and the farm is still functioning. The period dressed farm inhabitants are so welcoming and knowledgeable of the garden and its many plants. The twelve stone trail has artifacts from throughout Lincolns entire life. Go inside the visitor center to learn more of Lincoln's time in Indiana. Great place! Highly recommend a visit!
