This is a quick stop to check out the house. You cannot go in the house. It has a park area near. My daughter thought it was neat to see the house since she is a history nut but I wouldn't recommend it for children...More

We drove from the Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park to the Lincoln Heritage House, since they were fairly close together. It wasn’t open but the site is lovely to walk around ( old trees, peaceful meadow) and imagine what it may have been like...More

Picturesque place to walk around and enjoy nature. The drive is nice as well. There were only a few people there when we went and you are allowed to explore the area as you see fit. Nice little 45 minute stop.

Great place to stop and relax! There is a bench swing behind the house overlooking the lake. A nice quiet place to rest and just enjoy mother nature

If you're a history buff of course you must stop by. This is a decent little park with a bit of history about the area. With some proper funding this could be a really nice park. We enjoyed our little stop.

I look forward to coming back to Freeman Lake Park when this little piece of history gets renovated. Still worth the stop if you're in the area.
