Spanning over 120 acres, Lincoln Homestead State Park features both historic buildings and reconstructions associated with Thomas Lincoln, as well as the original two-story Francis Berry House where Nancy Hanks lived and worked as a seamstress, while being courted by Thomas. The buildings, including a gift shop and museum, are open Thursday through Sunday, May 1 – September 30. Along with picnic sites and a lake where visitors can go fishing, the park includes an 18-hole golf course on the land Mordecai Lincoln once farmed. On the other side of the road from the golf course is the Mordecai Lincoln House, built by Mordecai as an adult.
