The Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site is just south of Mattoon. This 86 acre site has an accurate reproduction of the home of Thomas and Sarah Bush Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln’s father and step-mother. The farm comes alive with interpreters who portray Lincoln’s family members and those of neighboring farmers. The graves of Lincoln’s parents are located in Shiloh Cemetery, very close to their homestead. The Visitor Center is open Thursday through Sunday from now until March.
