Thank you for your interest in Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.
A Foundation Document is a statement of a national park unit's purpose and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. In this capacity, the Foundation Document will reestablish the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park, and will serve as the first step for considering the future planning and study needs for the park.
