The Indiana Office of Tourism Development has released its latest list of “Visit Indiana’s 20 IN 20” and this one helps visitors dig into Hoosier history.
This list, the fifth of 20, features Indiana historic sites, including the boyhood home of President Abraham Lincoln.
The 16th president spent his formative years in downstate Indiana before moving to Illinois.
“Indiana boasts a surprisingly rich history. Three presidents and six vice presidents have called Indiana home or have Indiana ties,” said Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch. “Our great state is also home to two national memorials, 11 state historic sites and hundreds of landmarks and significant homes.”
IOTD says the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial was voted as Indiana’s Best Historic Destination in 2017.
The trail begins at the Lincoln Living Historical Farm and ends near Pioneer Cemetery where Lincoln’s mother is buried.
The Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites have 12 locations around the state, offering something for every interest.
