Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Site

The Nancy Lincoln Inn is a symbol of devotion to Abraham Lincoln's family from the early days of auto tourism. In 1928, James R. Howell built the inn, named in honor of Lincoln's mother, to accommodate increasing numbers of motorists who were coming to rural Kentucky to visit Lincoln's birthplace and the Memorial Building.

Howell, a descendant of Kentucky pioneers, constructed the inn and four cabins with large chestnut logs and red pine flooring. The 16-by-18 foot, one-room cabins were built to be similar to what we imagine the Lincoln cabin might have been. These buildings were placed on the National Register of Historic Places on January 10, 1991.
