Abraham Lincoln Birthplace
Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park is two separate farm sites in LaRue County, Kentucky, where Abraham Lincoln was born and lived early in his childhood. He was born at the Sinking Spring site south of Hodgenville and remained there until the family moved to the Knob Creek Farm northeast of Hodgenville when he was 2 years old, living there until he was 7. The parks include both the farmsteads associated with each residence as well as collaborating sites nearby, which recall other chapters from Lincoln's life in Kentucky. These parks tell the story of Abraham Lincoln's formative years and include historic structures, artifact collections, living history demonstrations and educational programs. Visitors can tour both the birth cabin site and Knob Creek Farm. It’s a great place to walk in the footsteps of one of America's most beloved presidents, and gain a better understanding of the man who shaped our nation's destiny.
