Short and sweet stop.

Not too much to see and the little office was closed. NO bathroom facility at this site. I'm sure the view is prettier in warmer weather. Nice stop for a picnic lunch maybe.

A bonus visit on our way to the Makers Mark distillery! Signs were posted along the route, so it was easy to find. Wide open spaces when you enter the historical sight. A guide was present to give us a good background on the cabin and was restoration has taken place. Walking trail for those that want to venture, accompanied... More

We made a stop here after visiting the Lincoln Birthplace National park we were pleased we did Its quite interesting to learn more about Lincoln and his time in KY The weather was a bit damp after the morning rain so we made it a brief stop but would certainly stop again when we return to the area

We always stop by here when we are out riding. Very peaceful and lots of shade. Park ranger isn't always available, but the information tablets provide a good background about the place. Almost a step back in time.

Being such a huge fan of President Lincoln, I was sad to learn it wasn't his actual boyhood home, but a home very much like his. His actual home was no longer there by the time they actually got around to it back in the day, unfortunately. The area is beautiful and worth visiting if you're in the vicinity -... More

There's not a lot here to see, but it's still well worth a stop for a bit of Lincoln history and to get an idea of what life was like back in the day. The lack of crowds also allows you to soak in the peaceful countryside.

This is the first place Lincoln remembers living. You can walk the same ground that he walked. The home there is not his home, and there isn't much to it. There is a walking trail around the place if you have time.

The cabin itself is a replica, and even though the surroundings are beautiful, there's nothing to do.

This is basically a field with a cabin on it. It depicts the site of the site of the farm when Lincoln lived here a young boy. This was where he farmed with his family. The creek in the back, the garden and a cabin. Parking is adjacent and rarely is the ranger on site. It is on the road... More
