Holiday World is a fun theme park destination that many Midwestern families visit each summer. The park in Southern Indiana is one of my family’s favorites. But did you know that just a few miles away from summer fun is a historic site that your kids would also love visiting?
The Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is a National Park Service site that preserves the Lincoln family farm, where Abraham Lincoln lived from age 7 to age 21. We visited recently and took a fun walk through the woods to an 1800s-style farm with a log cabin, park rangers demonstrating what life was like for Lincoln as a boy, and even heritage animals raised there such as chickens and sheep.
