Lincoln Log Cabin
By the 20th century, the original Lincoln log cabin no longer existed, and the Lincoln farm had become part of Lincoln City, a bustling railroad town. In 1933 the Lincoln cabin site was excavated. Workmen uncovered the remains of sill logs and hearth stones and built the stone wall. Later, the bronze fireplace and sill log casting were placed on the site to outline where the cabin stood. Some of the original hearth stones are now on display in the Memorial Visitor Center which I will feature in another post.
A short distance from the original cabin site stands the replica farm house. The Living Historical Farm is open seasonally, from mid-spring to early fall; it cultivates crops, raises livestock, and uses and displays historic farm implements.
