Where the Lincoln Legacy Began


Springfield, KY, “where the Lincoln legacy began,” is rich in the Lincoln family history, as well as Civil War history.


Abraham Lincoln’s parents wed in 1806 in the Beechland area of Washington County 4 miles from Springfield near what is now the Lincoln Homestead State Park. In honor of Lincoln a sculpture by artist Paula B. Slater, from Hidden Valley Lake, California was commissioned and sits in front of the Washington County Judicial Center. Its title, “In Sacred Union,” reflects two themes: Lincoln’s dedication to uniting our country after the Civil War and also the union of his parents Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks. Across the street from the sculpture in the 1816 Courthouse will be the “A. Lincoln Legacy Museum”, opening April 12, 2013.


Your journey into Americana history starts in picturesque downtown Springfield. Start at the restored Opera House which houses the Welcome Center, then browse the sites, enjoy the restaurants and get ready to be greeted by friendly smiles from residents who love their history and are happy to share it with you.
