The original cabin of Abe Lincoln is down the road a ways from the Lincoln National Park. It was moved from the park and rebuilt on site where it is said his home was. it is larger than the replica at the park. Interesting.

We stopped in here at the end of day as they were getting ready to close up but the lady allowed us enough time to go inside the cabin and gave us a brochure.

We stopped here to view this and found the grounds were lovely, and park ranger knowledgable however not very engaging. Very nice place to see.

A interesting visit to a log cabin and the first place Lincoln really remembered. Easy parking and just off the road with nice clean restrooms makes a very nice stop. Perfect for dog walkers and history buffs! Also the site is totally free.

The farm that Tom Lincoln owned before the move to Kentucky it was here that Abraham was born. The tavern on site was a commercial operation.

After visiting the birthplace of Lincoln, I drove about 10 miles to see his boyhood home. From what I read, back in those days, landlines criss-crossed and that was the reason the Lincolns had to move to this area. Their land was actually sitting on...More

Nice to go see if you're in the area. We were in Hodgenville to visit the Memorial and drove to see the boyhood home spot while we're in the area. Beautiful. There is the creek, a tavern and the cabin of Lincoln's boyhood friend. On...More

I "googled" the information, and according to what I saw this site is still closed. You can, however, visit the BIRTHPLACE of Abe Lincoln, which is only a couple of miles away. That Park really is worth the time to see... More
