Abraham Lincolnwas born in a small cabin on Sinking Spring Farm near Hodgenville on February 12, 1809. A little over two years later the family moved to another farm in the Hodgenville area. Despite claims made later by entrepreneurs hoping to cash in with a traveling exhibit of the cabin, the cabin Lincoln was born in was likely destroyed by the time he was assassinated. Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Sitelabels the replica cabin, which was built thirty years after his death, the "Traditional Lincoln Birthplace Cabin." However, the significance of the two Hodgenville sites (birthplace and boyhood home) are found in the setting itself. These two national sites still allow visitors to glimpse at the land that most influenced the life of Abraham Lincoln.
