We had a little extra time on our way to Maker's Mark distillery, so decided to stop at the Lincoln Homestead state park. You can take a guided tour - or just wander through the buildings yourself. Only $3/ person either way. Cabins are well restored and many period furnishings inside. Really worthwhile for anyone interested in Lincoln, early Kentucky or pioneer history. We were just going to "zip through", but the volunteer guide had so many interesting and informative stories that we spent over a half hour and would have stayed longer, but needed to get going or we would miss the last tour at Maker's Mark. it's only a slight "detour" through some very pretty scenery if you are heading to Maker's Mark on the 55 or 555. Plan about 25-30 minutes drive from here to Maker's Mark.
