Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace is located on Lincoln Farm Road in Hodgenville, Kentucky. On February 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln was reportedly born in this one-room log cabin, now called The Abraham Lincoln Bithplace National Historic Park. His parents, Thomas and Nancy Lincoln had moved to Sinking Spring Farm just two months before his birth, and lived here for two years before moving to a farm on Knob Creek. The original log cabin of Abraham Lincoln's birth no longer exists and was, in fact, a ruin even before he became president. The reconstructed log cabin sits in a Beaux-Arts neo-classical building made of marble and granite which was dedicated in 1911 by President William Howard Taft. There is a 56 step climb, one for each year of Lincoln's life, which leads to the entrance of the building. In 1916 the site was deeded to the government.
