Lincoln Living Historical Farm Reopens

The following information comes from Mike Capps of the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial:

The Lincoln Living Historical Farm at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial will resume daily operations Sunday, April 8, 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.

The 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.
