Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

Size: 200 Acres

Overview: Abraham Lincoln spent fourteen years of his life (1816-1830) on this patch of southern Indiana soil. It was here, during his formative years, that Lincoln established his renowned moral compass and respect for honest work that would allow him to become one of the most celebrated presidents in American history.

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial has preserved this small plot where he became the man who would shape the American political landscape; where he mourned the death of his mother; read the books that would nurture his intellect; and learned how to triumph over the adversities of life on the frontier.
