    Visited 1/15/2014. Staff very friendly. I have visited a lot of historical sites and this one is a great standard in honoring our history. It may be just the birth place, but the monument is one of respect. The grounds are wonderful and easy to traverse. Easy to pop in and take a free look. If you are more interested, the visitor center has a quick 15 minute movie plus on display is the family Bible. Which was wonderful to see and such a great reminder that we are a religious nation.

    I Love Our National Park. I think it is beautiful. The Cabin in the Memorial Building takes you right back to reality of what it must have been like when Lincoln was born. can You imagine a whole Family living in one room? There are so many interesting facts you will discover about this place where he was born. I have visited here many times over the years with my children. You see Hodgenville is my Home and I am very Proud of our Heritage. Come see for yourself:)

    We visited 2 years ago and liked it alot, so we thought of going back for the bicentennial which is this year. but come to find out the memorial was closed because of a ice storm many months back. very disappointing. also the movie was different, the one now seems to be a commercial for Kentucky instead of being Lincoln oriented.
