“where Abe spent 14 young years”
Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is a United States Presidential Memorial, a National Historic Landmark District in present-day Lincoln City, Indiana. It preserves the farm site where Abraham Lincoln lived with his family from 1816 to 1830. During that time, he grew from a 7-year-old boy to a 21-year-old man. His mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, and at least 27 other settlers were buried here in the Pioneer Cemetery. His sister Sarah Lincoln Grigsby was buried in the nearby Little Pigeon Baptist Church cemetery, across the street at Lincoln State Park. The Lincoln Boyhood Home was named a National Historic Landmark in 1960.
Great stop to learn about Lincoln! Can do the whole thing in 1-2 hours. Camping at Lincoln State Park is right across the road.
Pretty nice national park. Nice little farm life setting with real 'actors' on site plus a few chickens and horses.
