Lincoln Homestead State Park

State Park: Birding, Hike, Picnic, RV, Walk
Preserves the pioneer heritage of President Abraham Lincoln’s parents, Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks. Within the park grounds are a reproduction of the cabin that was the boyhood home of Lincoln’s father, and the actual house in which the President’s mother lived during her courtship with Thomas Lincoln. Split rail fences and pioneer furniture made by Thomas Lincoln and his contemporaries complete the picture of life in the rugged Lincoln era.
