Kentucky Lincoln National Heritage Area Feasibility Study
The National Park Service has concluded its study of for the proposed Kentucky Lincoln National Heritage Area.
Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky and lived there until he was seven. After moving away, he retained strong ties to the state. His early experiences in Kentucky and those lifelong ties influenced his personal and political life. Congress has passed legislation directing the National Park Service to study those sites associated with "Lincoln's Kentucky" to determine if those resources meet the criteria for designation as a national heritage area.
The Park Service conducted this study in coordination with representatives from the Kentucky Historical Society, other Kentucky state and local agencies, and each site proposed for inclusion in the heritage area.
