Another footprint along the Lincoln Trail.

A memorial to the most famous step-mother in American History. This cabin is a close replica of one lived in by local woman Sarah Bush Johnston and her three children in the early 1800's.

Sarah married Thomas Lincoln on Dec. 2, 1819, in Elizabethtown, thus uniting the Bush and Lincoln families.

We believe her love and good character favorably influenced young Abraham Lincoln who was destined to become sixteenth President of the United States.
