Abraham Lincoln's Childhood Home In Kentucky Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
The boyhood home of the former President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln, is at Knob Creek in Kentucky. The Lincoln family lived at this home from 1811 to 1816; Abraham Lincoln was two years old when the family started living at the property and a lot of his earliest memories were formed whilst living there. In adulthood he talked of the trees, streams, and hills of the area. The actual house where the Lincoln family lived was demolished in 1870 but has been recreated using antiques from the era. This historic landmark site is open to the public all year round, during daylight hours. It is a picturesque as well as interesting place to visit as can be seen from the picture on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts which depicts Abraham Lincoln's childhood home in Kentucky.
