Cabins all around to help you feel the history but then you find out that Lincoln was not born there but his parents were married in Springfield and lived near there. Golf course very close by.

Golf course is beautiful; however, the sand pits are hard as rocks with hardly any sand in them. The fairways don't have a good stand of grass.

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...More
