Lincoln’s Birthday Giveaway

Families sit around the bust at the Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza at Lincoln State Park

The giveaway has now ended. Thank you to everyone who entered, and congratulations to our winner, Jennifer A., of Springfield, MO! 

It may be Abe’s birthday… but you’re the one that might just get a great gift! Enter the Lincoln’s Birthday Giveaway to win an Abraham Lincoln-themed prize pack.

Why We’re Celebrating

Abraham Lincoln’s birthday is on February 12, but around here, we don’t just celebrate the man one day of the year. Why? Because Abe is a very important part of this area’s history!

The Lincoln family moved to this area of Indiana in 1816 and lived here for 14 years. These years proved to be quite formative for young Abraham. During his time here, he lost his mother, developed a love of reading and learning, discovered his entrepreneurial spirit, and tried (and won) his first court case. All between the ages of seven and 21!

What You’ll Win

If you’re planning a summer visit, this prize pack will help you have free family fun at some of the area’s most popular sites!

One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive:

Gate admission to Lincoln State Park – Enter the park for free and enjoy a day of hiking, biking, swimming, and more. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza, a unique monument built in celebration of Lincoln’s 200th birthday.

4 Passes to Lincoln Pioneer Village & Museum – The whole family will enjoy exploring the village’s 13 Lincoln-era replica cabins inside and out and strolling through the museum to see unique artifacts from this area’s rich history. (Open May – October)

Lincoln Bobble Head from the bookstore at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial – You can see a lot at this national park, from the Living Historical Farm to Nancy Hanks Lincoln’s gravesite. And of course, you can’t miss stopping by the bookstore to pick up a fun keepsake—like a bobblehead!

$25 gift certificate to Darlena’s Lincolnland Restaurant – After you’ve seen the sites, you’ll have worked up an appetite… so you deserve a meal fit for a president. Give Darlena’s Honest Abe Burger or Rail Splitter Breakfast a try!
