Abraham Lincoln Birthplace Information

Explore the early life of President Abraham Lincoln in Kentucky. With hiking trails, picnic areas and Lincoln's boyhood cabin, there is something for everyone!

As the first memorial built to honor the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park preserves two farm areas where Abraham Lincoln lived as a child in Kentucky: the birthplace site and the boyhood home site. At the birthplace site, visitors can view an early 19th century Kentucky cabin which symbolizes the one in which Abraham Lincoln was born; the cabin is enshrined inside the Memorial Building at the site of his birth. And at the boyhood home site, visitors can tour Knob Creek Farm, where Abraham Lincoln lived with his family from the ages of 2-8. This site includes a historic tavern and log cabin. Both sites include hiking trails and picnic areas.
