Visit the Boyhood Home of Abraham Lincoln

Yesterday, I posted a mini trip report of the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.

Today, you will see a mini trip report comprised of photographs of the Abraham Lincoln Boyhood Home Unit at Knob Creek, where he lived for several years until he was almost eight years old. I was told by a ranger that this site was not part of the National Park Service of the United States until 2012 — and unlike the log cabin in which Abraham Lincoln was born, you can touch this cabin where he grew up during part of his childhood.

Enjoy!
