Abraham Lincoln grew physically and intellectually into a man on this southern Indiana farm. He spent 14 formative years here— a quarter of his life. His mother, Nancy Hanks Lincoln, is buried here.
His sense of honesty, belief in education and learning, respect for hard work, compassion for his fellow man, and moral convictions were all borne out of his experiences in Indiana.
Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial preserves the place where Lincoln laughed with his father, coped with the deaths of his mother and sister, read the books that opened his mind, and triumphed over the adversities of life on the frontier.
