We visit once or twice a year. Always enjoy the history of the place. A short drive takes you to the spot on the Ohio river were Lincoln departed on his flat boat trip.

The museum and cabins provided fascinating insight into the life of the pioneers. Great facility, friendly and helpful staff, and interesting history of one of America's greatest presidents! Especially fun for history buffs! 5 stars

I really enjoyed this stop. I wasn't expecting much though considering it isn't a National Park. It's true that this place is nothing fancy, FYI it's cash only so if you show up without cash, you will have to move along or venture off to...More
