“WHERE IT STARTED”

Lincoln Homestead State Park
Reviewed 25 April 2016

This is the place to start your Lincoln trail. The marriage certificate of Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks is filed in the Washington County Court House in Springfield. Many people feel that Abraham Lincoln was actually born in Washington County. This is where it started!

The buildings are nicely preserved. The park is sprawling and hard to figure out as there is no visitor's center. The attendant at the golf course was helpful though.

Following the Lincoln trail? Jot to downtown Springfield to make the trip worth while. The marriage licenses of Lincoln's parents live n the old courthouse.

You just have to love everything Lincoln. It's a little out of the way but worth the trip, and while your in the area, go see Linclon's boyhood area. It's a nice park to have a picnic, stroll around, and enjoy the views.
