Our Town—Hodgenville

As the town closest to the Larue County birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, Hodgenville celebrates Lincoln’s legacy in many ways.

Lincoln was born on Feb. 12, 1809, on Sinking Spring Farm, three miles south of present-day Hodgenville, in what was then Hardin County. The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site is located here. When Lincoln was 2, his family moved to Knob Creek, a few miles away, where he lived until age 7. His boyhood home is also part of the historic site.
