Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

At the Memorial Visitor Center, visitors can watch a15 minute orientation film and walk through the newly renovated museum, then begin walking on the trail to see the tallest flagpole in Indiana and pause to see where Nancy Hanks Lincoln is buried.

The Lincoln Living Historical Farm is a re-created pioneer homestead with a cabin, outbuildings, split rail fences, farm animals, vegetable and herb gardens and field crops. Rangers in period clothing perform a variety of activities typical of the 1820 era.

We hope you enjoy our work.
