Birthplace

 

Birthplace: Sinking Spring Farm, 2995 Lincoln Farm Road, Hodgenville, KY (Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site - Birthplace Unit)

Visited: 9/28/97

Log Excerpt: "Out early to Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace NHS, arriving a little after 8:00. Here is the birthplace farm of Lincoln, where he lived to about 2. There is a marble building on a hill containing a restored, rebuilt log cabin which probably contains some logs from the original. Saw the spring that watered the farm and the site of the boundary oak. Took a nice walk through the woods."

Home: Indiana Highway 162, Lincoln City, IN (Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial)

Visited: 8/4/94

Log Excerpt: "Drove a ways to the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial [NHL]. Very nice place. Looked around the museum building - a lot of background on Lincoln, his father, mother and stepmother. Walked a short ways to Nancy Hanks Lincoln's grave (Lincoln's mother), then on to where the foundation and hearth of Lincoln's boyhood cabin was preserved by bronzing. Continued to a great reconstruction of the Lincoln farm with the barns and animals, wood chopping area, rope making and a cabin fully outfitted including people in period dress. Walked back to the parking lot via a trail with 12 stones pertaining to Lincoln. Some were good, e.g. the rock he stood on when he delivered the Emancipation Proclamation, others were a stretch, like the stone from his father's store in Illinois."

Home: 426 South Seventh Street, Springfield, IL (Lincoln Home National Historic Site)

Visited: 7/28/06

Log Excerpt: "Headed into town and parked at the Lincoln Home NHS at opening; got ticket for first tour 15 minutes later. Already hot and humid! Nice talk by Ranger on the grounds of the 2X2 block area with original homes and look of how it was when Lincoln lived here. On into the house where Lincoln lived 17 years before heading to D.C. as President. Saw the original desk where he wrote the “house divided” speech among others and nicely restored rooms with good talk."
