The fantastic fall foliage on the Trail of 12 Stones at the Lincoln Boyhood Home National Memorial, where the leaves on the ground were so thick it was almost impossible to find the trail at times.
This hike commemorates significant events in Lincoln's life and career with a memorial stone from the site of each occurrence.
Abraham Lincoln and his family moved to Indiana from Kentucky when he was seven. He lived there for 14 years, from 1816 to 1830, before moving to Illinois when he was 21. This is where Lincoln grew into a man and lost his mother, Nancy, and sister, Sarah.
Located in Lincoln City, Indiana, the Abraham Lincoln Boyhood Home and National Museum preserves the Lincoln family's farm site and his mother's grave. Adjacent to the National Memorial is the Lincoln State Park, created as a memorial to Lincoln's mother. His sister's grave is in the state park at the Little Pigeon Creek Baptist Church and Cemetery.
