“log cabin and all”
For over a century people from around the world have come to rural Central Kentucky to honor the humble beginnings of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. His early life on Kentucky's frontier shaped his character and prepared him to lead the nation through Civil War. The country's first memorial to Lincoln, built with donations from young and old, enshrines the symbolic birthplace cabin.
We loved this place! It was so interesting to see where Abe lived in his younger years, as well as the amazing memorial that was built in this little town. So inspiring to be walking on the same ground that he walked on almost 200 years ago!
Pretty neat stop for the family! Thanks for sharing this place with the community/visitors!
Very cool day trip, or worth a stop if you're passing through. My 3 and 6 yo were entertained by the museum and film for an hour. They did the JR ranger program, and the monument and grounds are beautiful
We were in Nashville, Tennessee and had 1 extra day, so we decided to visit this memorial. It was so interesting and then discovered not to far away was his next childhood home. It explained that the there were many deed disputes in Kentucky that led to the Lincoln’s moving from the state.
Beautiful park to visit and see where Abraham Lincoln was born.
Beautiful place must see!
