Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial Featured on Passport to Your National Parks 2009 Commemorative Stamp Set

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

National Park News

Acting Superintendent Mike Capps has announced that Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial has been selected to represent the Midwest region on the Passport to Your National Parks 2009 commemorative stamp set. Eastern National and the National Park Service first introduced the Passport program in 1986. The Passport to Your National Parks book is a 104 page booklet designed to be a travel companion for park visitors. The pocket-sized guide contains full-color maps and photographs, a national park list, and interesting facts about America’s national parks. National park visitors can collect annual commemorative stamps and rubber-stamp ink cancellations inside the Passport book.

Each year, Eastern National holds a contest for NPS employees and volunteers to select ten images – one national and nine regional – for the collectible Passport commemorative stamp sets. The stamps are distributed on a single perforated sheet and can be detached and placed in designated sections of the Passport books. “It is especially appropriate,” says Capps, “that Lincoln Boyhood is featured during this Bicentennial year.” The 2009 stamp set can be purchased online at; by calling 877-628-7275; or by visiting Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is located off of Indiana Highway 162 in Lincoln City, Indiana. Admission to the park, which includes the Lincoln Living Historical Farm, is $3.00 per person, age 17 and older, with a maximum charge of $5.00 per family. The receipt for admission is good for a period of seven days from the date of purchase. There is no charge for visitors who present an Interagency Pass, a Senior Pass, an Access Pass, or an Annual Lincoln Boyhood Park Pass. The passports may be purchased at the park. For more information, please call the park at 812-937-4541.
