Continuing on with our journey exploring our Nations 16th President, this was a beautiful and very educational stop much like the visit to Indiana where Abraham Lincoln moved after his time spent in Kentucky as a child. There is an excellent educational video shown at the visitor center with plenty of history about his early life. There is also a monument beside the visitor center that houses a replica of his childhood home. The stairs leading to the monument are 56, which is the number of years he was alive. The area is known as Sinking Creek due to the natural spring on the property, which is still active today. It’s also near the monument. I also suggest the hiking trails around the park as well. Overall, very informative, and a great, often forgotten National Park. If you’re in the area and have the time, stop in. You won’t regret it. Abraham only lived here until age 2, but a few miles away is his other home at Knob Creek, which is also worth a visit.
