Lincoln State Park
Abraham Lincoln would say, "Here I grew up," to describe the rolling hills and shady forest of what is now Lincoln State Park. The Lincoln story is told in grand style drama in our 1,500 seat, covered outdoor amphitheatre each summer. Lincoln is a must for school groups who can combine history with the outdoors for an outstanding educational experience.
The adjacent Lincoln Boyhood National
Memorial features a Memorial Visitor Center with museum and hourly film,
the Lincoln cabin site, the grave site of Abraham Lincoln's mother, and
the historic Trail of Twelve Stones which are open daily except,
Thanksgiving, December 25, and New Year's Day. A working pioneer
farm is open May 1 through September 30. Entrance fees are $2 for
persons over age 17 or a maximum of $4 per family. NPS Golden
Eagle, Golden Age and Golden Access passes are honored.
