Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial

In 1933 the Lincoln cabin site was excavated. Workmen uncovered the remains of sill logs and hearth stones and built the stone wall. Later, the bronze fireplace and sill log casting were placed on the site to outline where the cabin stood. Some of the original hearthstones are now on display in the Memorial Visitor Center.

By the 20th century, the original Lincoln log cabin (similar to the one pictured below) no longer existed and the Lincoln farm had become part of Lincoln City, a bustling railroad town.

Inspecting the cabin hearthstones in May, 1934.
