Lincoln Heritage Trail

The Kentucky Lincoln Heritage Trail consists of museums and historic sites that interpret the key people, places, and events that tell Kentucky’s Lincoln story. More than the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, Kentucky was home to his parents, wife, best friend, and political idol. Although he left the Bluegrass State as a boy, Lincoln’s relationships with Kentuckians played a critical role in forging his personal and professional life.
