Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site, 10 mi. e. off I-57 Charleston exit, then 8 mi. s. on Fourth St., is the site where Abraham Lincoln's father and stepmother lived from 1840 until their deaths. The site contains a visitor center and park office; an 86-acre homestead, including a replica of the Lincoln log cabin; outbuildings; root cellars; a mid-19th-century barn; and the Stephen Sargent farm. Interpretive living-history programs, offered in summer and fall, provide a glimpse at daily living in 1845.
