Lincoln's Birthplace Memorial Building


Inside this memorial stands a log cabin claimed to be the cabin in which Abraham Lincoln was born. There are doubts that the cabin is the actual one, but it did travel across the country in the late 1800 or early 1900s as the original.

What is original is the Sinking Spring Farm where the log cabin stands today. Named after the fresh water source on the property, this farm was owned by Lincoln's father and little Abraham walked around these grounds and drank water from the sinking spring (which still exists today).
