46 KY Hodgenville -- Lincoln Birth Site

In December 1808 Thomas and Nancy bought the Sinking
Spring farm. Abraham Lincoln was born here February 12, 1809.

The original cabin was moved to a nearby site, then again dismantled
and exhibited around the nation. In 1906 a preservation group
purchased the cabin and in 1911 it was placed inside the memorial.

Whether any part of the cabin is original is uncertain.
