Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site
Lincoln Log Cabin preserves the site of the last home and farm of Abraham Lincoln's father and stepmother, Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln. The Lincolns moved to the farm in 1837. Featured at the site are two living history farms that portray recreated agricultural practices as they existed in 1840s Illinois—the Thomas Lincoln Farm and the Stephen Sargent Farm. About 10 acres of period crops are cultivated, along with a hay field. Animals include teams of working oxen and horses, several sheep, and hogs similar to the razorbacks with which 1840s Illinois farmers were familiar.
The site offers exhibits, living history demonstrations, a short film, and educational and recreational programs and events.
