LINCOLN LIVING HISTORICAL FARM OPENS

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

National Park News

The Lincoln Living Historical Farm at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial will resume daily operations Sunday, April 11, 2010. The hours of operation for both the Memorial Visitor Center and the Farm are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (CDT) daily. National Park Service interpreters in pioneer clothing will illustrate daily chores and frontier farming methods as part of the farm's living history demonstrations. Cooking, splitting rails, riving shingles, breaking flax, and spinning wool are just some of the day to day chores that will be interpreted. Visitors to the farm have the opportunity to learn how Abraham Lincoln grew from a pioneer boy, just seven years of age, to a young man of twenty-one.
