Heritage Tourism

The Kentucky Lincoln Heritage Trail consists of historic sites and museums with ties to the sixteenth president.  Last year, more than 500,000 people visited Lincoln Trail sites from local, regional, national, and international locations.  




Kentucky"s Lincoln Heritage Trail serves important educational functions.  Each year, thousands of students take field trips to experience the exhibits and programs at the trail's historic sites and museums.
