REVIEWS OF Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park IN Illinois

Cat Barber

This was a great place to visit! It's about half a day worth activity. - There's a small shop for souvenirs and where you can find the National Park Book stamp. - It's free to get in - There's a movie to preview that gives a breakdown of the park - You can view the type of house Lincoln lived in. - There's a beautiful spring well you can view - There is a trail to walk but bring bug spray if you go during the summer. - There is another part to the park a few miles away. It's another location Lincoln lived with his family. Another quick trip I would highly recommend going and learning about one of our best president's!

Joe Barnosky

Had a wonderful experience here. Our daughter loves Lincoln, it is her favorite president. They have the junior ranger program here. The staff is wonderful, insightful and very helpful. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. There is a lot of rich history here, even things they don't teach you in school or mainstream history. They focus more on Lincoln's growing up there with only brief snippets of any other part of his life. This is great because more focus could go into this particular part of his history.

bryton hawkins

great place with hiking trails and lots of history of course. I ride my bike down here often as I live fairly close in Elizabethtown. They have stuff for everyone young and old, though to get to the actual memorial you have to climb up a good amount of steps. There's a wheelchair accessible path but you better have strong arms or a good pusher cause its a long way up.

Alex C

We googled what was close to Elizabethtown when we were driving through back to Florida and decided to stop here! So happy we did! My 4 year old enjoyed it too- we walked through the education center which had some cool displays and a short film,also a small gift shop. Then we walked around the grounds and took some photographs

Kurt Rose

A great surprise. We didn't expect to see the big memorial and we certainly didn't expect to see the vintage house inside. The house gives a good perspective on the simple life that Lincoln was born into. The grounds are well maintained. It would have been nice to have had more time to walk the trails to see more of the facility.

Brian Smithey

Gorgeous park. Must see for history nerds.

Susie Hammond

Pretty place. Nice family trip! Checked it off the Bucket List!

Lara Polk

My son and I stopped at this landmark on our way home to Alabama from Chicago. It is full of history and such a nice place. We will definitely go back when we have more time to really take in everything they have. Great job and a great place to stop.

TWO GUYS AND A HOG. COM

Well done, quaint, extremely manicured and Clean. Educational and great for the kids as well as the adults. What I expected from our great national parks. A place you need to visit if you happen to be in the area.

Carly Siriann

The park rangers were excellent. The monument itself was beyond anything we expected. We were amazed at all of the symbolism involved. Two presidents were involved in the making of this monument. If you are here, make sure you also visit the second part which is knob creek. The drive between the two areas was beautiful. You can visit here completely for free. The trail educates you about trees and how pioneers used them.

Nick T.

Great place to visit. Glad we took advantage of being in the area and paid a visit. Beautiful scenery and historic site.

JR. Gutierrez

Amazing historical place to visit, beautiful park with one of the best monument of our country. You will learn all the little details about the place of birth and life of Abraham Lincoln, like his favorite and most reading book ( of course the Bible), go back in time and enjoy this place of birth of one of the best presidents of this bless and beautiful nation.

Rose Gifford

Interesting place. I'm glad that we went. The house that has been preserved they did determine is not Lincoln's childhood home. The house was on a high hill and the water supply that they drew from was from a live spring, which is still active, way down at the bottom of the hill. So it was interesting to know that in order to have water they had to fetch it from couple hundred yards away then hike back up the hill with it! Lincoln was born in Kentucky and lived there until he was 7 but the nicest display of Lincoln's Boyhood is in Lincoln City Indiana where he spent his formative years. There is a Lincoln national park there and a Lincoln State Park there in Lincoln City Indiana.

Robert Myers

A memorial built around a reconstruction of an old log cabin that isn't the one where Lincoln was born. Nice grounds, nice visitor center, but not a lot there.

James Madden

Somewhat of an anticlimactic experience when we were informed it wasn't Abraham Lincoln's actual birth home - it was actually a cabin from the 1840s. We were told it was his "symbolic birthplace" (whatever that means). The rangers were quite rigorous and anxious to get visitors (who happen to be the taxpayers who fund their pay and the park itself) off the property promptly at 5pm or else face consequences. 4 stars instead of 5 because of these factors.

David Wiggins

Beautiful place! Family lived it here! See you next yr!

Jim Whiteside

A real nice cool morning good walk love this place four different trails to walk 2 miles from my house

kyle moody

I'm not the history buff type but my friend wanted to stop.Very informative place. Had a video and a bunch of exhibits to look at.Also had a park ranger who was very helpful. Bunch of trails and stuff to look at outside too.

Kaley Mayer

The memorial is impressive on the outside. The tour is mildly interesting. That's about all the site has to offer.

RJ Olson

This was just an awe inspiring place preserving our 16th presidents birth place. The history is wonderful through the visitors center and the the visit to the cabin on the hill just a worthwhile visit.

Jamie Collins

Beautiful grounds and picnic area. We come here often with our kids.

homer holt

A must do when your in the area.... A lot of good walking around trails as well. We went when it was closed but still had plenty to see and learn about! The park is VERY well kept

Lehnanne Gibbs Kidd

Educational in a tranquil setting. The walking paths, the sinking spring and the effort and care in maintaining this park honoring President Lincoln is humbling.

Keith Shearin

Very clean and loved the outdoors ...very well kept .

Tyler J. Adams

This is likely the least visited Memorial dedicated to Lincoln's personal history, but should be on your list of places to see in this area of Kentucky. You'll learn about his humble beginnings, and if you have kids, I think they can better appreciate the President, to know about his humble beginnings. The staff was easy to engage in Q&A with. While they only believe this is the home he was born in, it's certainly comparable to many from the time period. Be sure to walk the grounds if you can and check out the Sunken Spring, where the Lincolns drew their water supply. © TIFA 2003

Casel Burnett

Great way to learn the humble beginnings of our 16th President Abraham Lincoln. It's preserved in a beautiful spot in Kentucky. Nice place to stop especially if you take back roads like 31E or 31W.

John Ross

Americas national parks, well kept and friendly staff.

Rebecca Bagley

We enjoyed our visit to Lincoln’s birthplace . What an informative visitor center and the house is nicely displayed in the smaller Lincoln Monument. I also liked the hikes close by.

Maria Uricoechea

It is a beautiful and relaxing place . I love it!

Dan MacGregor

If you are in the area, come visit the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. It a free exhibit and has great walking trails and the natural spring to see and a representation of what one man can do, who grows up with humility, dignity and respect for all people.

C

The park and surrounding areas are beautiful. Both of my kids got their junior ranger badges. The whole family had a great time.

Eric

Amazing park with great Park Rangers informing you about one of the greatest presidents. The log cabin visit was very moving. A must go.

Kay Hagan-Haller

Beautiful National Park with walking trails, nice gift shop, historical information, and beautiful scenery. Well worth the trip.

Craig L. McCloud

For any history buff, this is a required staple. So beautiful and accessible.

Elise Lambert

Beautiful Country, very nice amenities. Thank so much!

David Morris

Really well laid out. Great to see a piece of history taken care of as they have here.

Virginia Rodgers

I'm so grateful for the people who had the foresight to preserve the land where Lincoln was born and who created this very special monument in his memory. The monument is impressive and the grounds are green and lush.

Aaron M Mills

Very knowledgeable staff and a nice quick park to stop off at for some insight into Lincoln's early life

Amelia Tuyls

Definitely a cool historic location to have a picnic at. The museum was nice, couldn't really explore the buildings like I had hoped but overall it was worth it and I'm glad I went!

Denise Wolters

Loved it. Great history lesson. Very easy to walk.

Lonnie Perry

Beautiful National Park. I have visited before but this was the first time with my grandson. He is young, but wet enjoyed seeing the buildings and walking aground. I think he enjoyed seeing the spring water.

Karen Smith

My grandchildren are learning about the presidents. They really enjoyed seeing how small his home was, even though it isn't his actual home, it replicates the conditions. Very enjoyable.

Debra Flower

Very interesting. Beautiful area

Gregory Stiller

I was impressed with the size of this Memorial. Got here early to avoid any crowds. Enjoying the day visiting former President home. Mr. Lincoln and family did get around. Remember the difficulty of the day getting around. Today's people trying to find a way to grocery shop without leaving home. Now to lazy to use finger to push turn signal lever.

David Dingus

Great place to visit lots of history

Laura Rios

Mega cool memorial that surrounds the Lincoln cabin replica that Abe may have been born in. If you have been to the memorial in DC, this memorial was built 12 years Prior to that one (and looks very familiar). Those who haven't been to DC, this memorial is as beautiful and grand.

Angela Hunter

Very interesting place. Great for all ages. Handicapped accessible.

Megan Johnson

Great place to see with good history.

Jeanne Dunchus

Very interesting...good stop to get out and walk around and learn some history.

Gery Meehan

Second trip here. Staff are extra nice and helpful. Son earned his Junior Ranger badge. The badges are metal...most all other sites/parks are plastic. My son was sick while trying to finish the badge and the staff were out of their way kind and helpful.

Kevin Rodkey

There's historical significance to commemorating the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln but the site does little to tell about him. The most interesting thing was learning how a later generation decided to memorialize his birthplace.

Wayne Campbell

Great take! No Charge. I'm shocked the shameful Democratic party hasn't tried to tear this down too...

Staci Hixson hixsonstaci@hotmail.com

The museum contains a lot of great information. The replica cabin sits atop of a hill where it was believed to be built originally. There’s beautiful steps leading straight to it. There’s also a wheelchair accessible path through the woods which doubles as a nice nature walk.

Marigold Farms Lori Hornback

Great slice of American history! Staff is so sweet.

Steve White

Friendly staff. Site is nicely taken care of.

Kelly Southworth

Beautiful grounds. And knowledgeable staff. We had a great time

Christine Boulton

Made an impromptu detour to this place and was not disappointed. The gentleman inside (I’m so sorry I forgot his name) was incredibly friendly and super knowledgeable. We walked around and got to see the replica of Abraham Lincoln’s home. The gift shop had some neat items as well.

Becca Crow

I'm a history nerd, so I'd been looking forward to this trip. We had the friendliest park ranger help us purchase the National Park Passports for my kids. She explained how they worked, showed them how to find the parks in each state, where to stamp them, and how to get stamps from previously visited parks. The short film was informative. There are several (56) steps to climb to get to the monument and log cabin. There is a wheelchair accessible sidewalk too. There is the Lincoln family Bible on display and the stone that marked the grave of Lincoln's brother in the visitors center. There were period tools and household items on display as well. You can also visit Sinking Spring next to the memorial. It boasts to be the place Lincoln may have got his first drink of water. The kids spotted a big ole crawdad and a frog down there. It won't take long to go through all of it, but it was an enjoyable and educational trip.

Joseph Chandler

Great visit. Loved all the history. Be sure to check out the boyhood home as well.

Peter Picklesimer

I have a great time learned things about lincoln that i was not aware of .The Rangers were very helpful. Was able to see actual items that belonged to the Lincolns. It added to our vacation experiances. Would recommend that others go and see it.

Marie Espinoza

They have a little museum and gift shop. They show a short film like every 30 minutes. They have a memorial with a replica of the log cabin he was born in inside the Memorial. You can take a pleasant walk from the gift shop to the Memorial. Either one with steps or another one with a level ramp to the Memorial/cabin. We used Google maps to find this location. Lots of little winding, farm roads to get there. So, thanks Google maps!

David Parisoe

Great place to visit, it was wonderful to see the house Lincoln was born in and where he loved as a child.

kingtad rock

Well worth the trip. Better than the memorial in DC without the bus loads of people. Laid back atmosphere.

Kasey Bradley

Very informative tour guide. Does have a junior ranger program as well as cancellation stamps for the passport program.

D. Taylor

Friendly and helpful Rangers. Great with "Jr. Rangers." Thank you for a nice visit!

lavada taylor

Learned more than what the text books told you in school.

Robin Oligny

We enjoyed our stop here. No charge. Informative short film and friendly, knowledgeable rangers. I'm glad we spotted the sign on I 65.

Gina Merritt

Very informative. I’ve always wanted to see this and I was not disappointed.

Byron Gill

The national park is free to the public and shows what the living conditions were like at the time of Abe Lincoln's birth. The replica of the Lincoln Memorial on the grounds was amazing.

Sean McDermott

Not much to see/do but I still think worth a visit if in the area. Pretty good video in the visitor center. Would love to see some picnic tables added.

Regina Williams

Very knowledgeable staff! Eager to help, answer questions and share information. Beautiful grounds.

Patricia Zempel

Visitor center was neat and full of information. Rangers were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Restrooms were clean. My son got his Jr ranger badge to add to his collection. Great stop on our trip!

Denise Hicks

What a great getaway trip to explore Abraham Lincolns birthplace and boyhood home. Highly recommend.

Bess Ann Bredemeyer

Smaller than expected, exhibit and information wise but still worth a stop if you're in the area.

Adrenne Deason

It's a nice place but none of the information before we got there told us the cabin that's there is not Lincoln's. A lot of walking.

Joe Cassidy

This was a great stop. It's not a place that you'll spend a lot of time and it's very well kept. Well worth swinging by if you are driving by anyway. It would be debatable if you had to go a long way out if your way to visit. Who doesn't love seeing where one our best presidents was born!?

Cindy Hayes

Nice place to stroll the ground. Loved the monument housing log cabin replica. Good information center

Rodolfo Molina

It was an amazing place to visit. To actually see the birthplace of our most influential president

D Eklof

You can see different things and learn some history about our president

Suzy Fellabaum

Very interesting. We were on a class field trip. Our guide was very knowledgable and great with the kids. Although the cabin was not Lincoln's actual cabin but one of the era that was preserved it is very easy to get the nuance of life in those times. It is a beautiful setting and the memorial was well thought out to represent Lincoln with the number of windows to mark the that he was the 16th president and 56 steps for the number of years he lived.

Janine Hering

Very nice grounds. The memorial building with the replica log cabin was beautiful. Wish we had more time there.

Jason Puett

Neat recreation of American history. Beautiful architecture covering the model cabin. Beautiful park grounds to hike and explore.

Gladys McCandless

Had a great day with family ,could,nt went anywhere any better.

Adam Cornett

Middle America architecture has been blowing me away lately, and this place is no exception. Wonderful landscaping, friendly park workers, and the monument is on a whole other level with it’s scale and design. The cabin inside is not the original (if you care about that sort of thing) but I would absolutely recommend everyone take a quick visit if you get the chance. There’s plenty to explore here, and it’s only 8 miles from Abe’s actual birthplace, so definitely take the time if you’re traveling.

Deepti Agrawal

Definitely worth going! It shows the childhood memories of Abraham Lincoln. They had plenty of parking and we'll kept restrooms. There was small gift shop and small museum as well where they showed a model of his birthplace on the farm and a video too. The memorial was a separate white building on the same property and was PH accessible. We also visited the farmland where he spent his childhood.

Mr. Moto Dad

Great place, tons to see and learn.

Kenneth Ragsdale

Very interesting and historical stop, off the beaten path but worth the trip. I enjoyed the park and exhibits.

David Simmons

Great place if you are a historical buff. Kinda simple, but learned some things that I never new. Glad I visited.

EB Speakman

We love going to historical places. This trip was a spontaneous stop on a long ride home over a holiday weekend. We took about an hour to look around but there were trails that would have been fun to hike if we had more time.

Ryan H

Government needs to quit cutting back and put more money into their parks, it is a good way to learn and not lose any history learning.

Jason N

Alot of great information and easy to take kids through.

Karl

Very clean park, staff was friendly and knowledgable, all the displays were great and well maintained. They had a movie in the visitor center that was very informative and the gift shop was small but still had a nice selection. They also have lot of paths to walk around the location.

Darryl Baethge

Little disappointed the cabin was a replacement of a cabin that came 30 years after the period Abe would have lived in it. Nice cabin though. Very informative Park Ranger in the cabin monument.

Todd Welsh

It is a small but nice tribute to our 13th president.

gen mia

Grounds are well kept and the visitor center has knowledgeable staff. Great place to visit

Jennifer Spangler

We enjoy a short video about Lincoln's life. Nice trails to walk. Learned about the Jr Ranger program. Our boys earned their first badge. The Rangers were very helpful.

Scott Webb

Nice park with knowledgeable staff.

Chris McKinney

Fun visit, especially for the junior rangers program. It was pouring rain for most of our visit, but once the weather cleared it made for some great pictures of the spring (just to the left of the stairs leading up to the monument). A visit here will take about an hour, depending on how much you explore.

Roger Bush

Great venue for a good history lesson, and it's free!!!

Randi Custer

It is OK if you are trying to notch parks. They have The Lincoln Family Bible and an interesting family tree. The monument, true to NPS standards, has been built well away from parking. They feel long walks are good for you even if you are disabled. You walk two blocks to the 56 steps of the monument or walk a 1/4 mile through the woods to see a scaled down replica of their log home. The history, his dad moved here and bought a farm near a spring on bad soil that could barely be farmed. The surveys were not certified so they got kicked off the land while they and several other families fought it out in court with a local big wig. They leased bottom land at Knob Creek till they lost the law suit. They moved on to Indiana where surveys were certified. After kicking them out and Abe becoming President they named everything in the region after him and make more money in an hour than Thomas paid for the farm ($300). At Knob Creek they have replica of their cabin made from log cabin wood salvaged from the period. Everything is locked up, but you can look at it. At the main site they put in all these new facilaties, insist you go to the visitors center to get a head count. They have a rigid schedule for the film that ends well before closing so you may not see it. The park gates close precisely on time. They are quite proud and blast all over the park they will lock you in.

Karalee Manning

Soo nice! Beautiful place. Gift shop has a lot of variety! Workers are very helpful and professional!

Johnie Hamrick

Nice place to visit great staff plus it is free!

Kuldeep Jain

Great place. Grounds are well maintained and monument is well preserved.

Kevin Kinkade

Park Rangers are great, the grounds are lovely and the movie is excellent and informative.

Johanna Bruner

Nice drive from Louisville. Cost is free. I was expecting a bigger park.

Kari Griffee

A fun little stop. I wouldn't plan a trip around this but I was happy to visit as we were headed through to our next destination.

Jed Boyd

This place is very informative. I learned so much about our 16th president. The grounds are immaculate. All the staff are super informative.

Ryan W. Gates

Gorgeous park with very nice staff. The guard in the memorial made me laugh hysterically as he explained to me and my kids that the cabin was an authentic cabin from the 1800's but was neither the Lincoln's nor from the area, "...so it is a cabin, but really has nothing to do with Abraham Lincoln."

I. M

Looking at the sites where young Abraham learned to take his first steps was very interesting. Seeing how they lived and the land the occupied helped me understand the history. There you can take a short tour and see a cabin built in the years in which Abraham and his family lived in the area (around 2 years). The cabin (which is period original and like the one he lived in) is kept inside a larger building for preservation purposes. From there you can drive to the site where young Abraham lived from the age of 2 until he was around 9 years old. It is 15 minutes away and the route follows the route they followed on the move. I highly recommend you visit both.

Derek Dotson

Very historic. Nice place to visit

Edward Stevens

What a find, we were passing through Kentucky and saw the sign. We were very impressed a great piece of history preserved. Very educational, everyone there was friendly and knowledgeable. What a great experience they even had the DNR there with display set up about wildlife in the state. Very well maintained and pet friendly.

Bob Rouch

One of our greatest presidents. Definitely worth seeing.

Bruce Reith

I rate a 5 but I am partial to Lincoln and they didn't have a 6 option. Surprised to find a cabin inside a memorial but it was a nice touch.

Joy Shorter

Our whole family enjoyed this little piece of history. The grounds are kept nice. Besides the log cabin and the springs, there is a small gift shop and a mini museum with some Lincoln history displayed. There is also a lovely little walking path that takes you on a short little hike. You won't need to plan a lot of time to spend here, but it was worth the stop.

David Gonzales

Very well done. They made the whole walk from the visitors center to the cabin easy. The have a boarded walk way handicap friendly. Great service. Worth the trip

DONNA SULLIVAN

Clean park. Staff was super, knowledgeable and friendly

Maureen Johnson

Great park to visit with the family for a bit of historical information and also natural beauty. It is a small park, which makes navigating it with small children that much easier. Start at the visitor center and ask about the Junior Ranger program. It allows the kids to receive an activity book that they fill out as they learn by exploring the park. Once they complete the designated assignment, they can receive a badge. Apparently all of the National parks participate in this program. The replica of the Lincoln Memorial is beautiful and they have a few walking trails.

Primarina Sun

This National Park offers a couple nice little easy trails for the whole family to do as well as nice staff to welcome you at the visitor center overall this is a must see if you're passing by in the area

theresa Corral

Display are great. Nice movie. Staff very friendly and informative.

Cyber Terrapin

The Memorial is a must see. The design and reliefs rival memorials in D.C. Truly breath taking. The trek to the grave site is worth the effort.

Victor Gerhardt

Must see! It's a part of American history. The spring in the ground was awesome.

Brad Gerhardt

A jewel tucked away in central Kentucky. Will make a great pit stop along any style vacation. Don't forget to get your passport stamped!

CNH 320

Didn't get to stay long but it is a nice well maintained place and the staff is very friendly. Inside the visitor center is a gift shop and a 14 minute video that tells about Abraham Lincoln and his time in Ky. There are also Lincoln logs to play with and lots of Abraham Lincoln facts and pictures around. It's a short walk to view a replica of the cabin he was born in. It's a beautiful place.

Sherry Carroll

On vacation, magical what you can find when your driving.

Mina Davis

Historical moment and very well managed. Just wish they stayed open after 5 PM.

pamela nanamomma@gm.ilil.com

I have always enjoyed reading about Lincoln. I Pasted this on our way to Lexington Ky a few years ago. I had the opportunity to go back this summer . I will be back with my grandkids next year.

Michelle Vaughn

Very serene, just not alot to see. The cabin is t even the real one.

Dan Stryker

Interesting but doesn't wow you...

Atul Chaudhari

A good place to visit with family. Kids would love to learn more about President Abraham Lincoln and also visit more historic places around this park. It is quite place and easy to walk trails. (Wheelchair accessible)

Walter Rice

Nice place great display park was pretty.

Lanea Dunn

Nice grounds. We came late in the day, but the park rangers all were happy to educate us. We had a lot of questions. We enjoyed our visit.

Louis PD

I lived many in the Usa, and never heard of this historic park, until my trip to Ft. Knox. Excellent experience, it cant get any better specially on a 4th of July week. God bless the USA...

George Mwasumbi

Stopped at the park while on the way back from an outing. The park is very scenic, and contains a little museum building where you can find out the story behind the place and its origins. The rangers were very friendly and willing to answer any questions we had, and conveyed a clear understanding of the history of park and a knowledge of Lincoln's early life. A great place to stop by if you have the time!

Margaret Eisenhauer

Wonderful tribute to Lincoln. Wish it wouldn't have been raining, I would have explored more .

Madison Crittenden

History buff approved! Loved getting the opportunity to see this

David Francis

A nice history lesson on the former president’s family and his time in Kentucky. The memorial is very fitting to the President Lincoln.

Rebekah Shilling

Gorgeous park!!! Loads of information about Lincoln and his amazing life shared in the information Center. The house is not his house its a replica but still cool. Junior Ranger program is pretty awesome. And the park is free

Alicia Collegnon

Very nice tribute to him.woryh the stop

David Kravetz

Like history? This is a good place. Abe Lincoln was born here. The old cabin is built into a monument building to protect it. Lots of stairs.

Ash Kizer

Small, but well-maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Monument was unique and offered an exciting glimpse of history. You can walk down to the spring Lincoln would have drunk from as a baby. See the Lincoln family Bible and other artifacts. Small gift shop. Hiking trail.

Betty Cash

Great to visit here. Especially since my husband's ancestor, Warren Cash was very well acquainted with the Lincoln family.

Alex Studd

An absolute worthwhile stop for any history buff! Such a unique experience. I'm glad they've been able to protect Lincoln's birth house after so many years.

Joshua Cockerham

Nice grounds. Only about 15 minutes off the interstate. I'm glad we made the stop to see it.

Lara Hawthorne

Some great history in the visitors center. 1 of 2 National parks where a Junior Ranger can earn a metal badge. Beautiful grounds, fully accessible wooden walkway to memorial

Wesley Rayl

Such a neat and enjoyable experience. The park rangers were extremely knowledgeable and obviously enjoy what they do. They have a lot of information and want to share it. Start at the welcome center and then go up the 56 steps (his age when he was assassinated) to the actual memorial. From there I would recommend taking the small walk along the trail and then finish at the small spring. There is at least a twenty degree difference in temperature down at the well and it feels amazing after the hike.

Melanie Fenstermaker

Great historical fact's great art work

Heather Larson

My 8 year old loves presidents. He really liked it here. Both my boys did the junior ranger program. Tons to see inside and outside. Loved it here.
