Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial to Waive Entrance Fee on National Public Lands Day

All National Park Service sites, including Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial, will offer free visitor admission on September 30 for National Public Lands Day.

One third of the land in the United States has been set aside as open space.  600 million acres of parks, refuges, forests, wetlands, cultural sites, and other shared areas provide a variety of public resources.

National Public Lands Day is the only time that entrance fees are waived systematically on public lands throughout the country.  Normally, 147 of the country’s National Park Service sites charge entrance fees ranging from $3 to $25.

The other federal agencies not charging for admittance that day include the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the U.S. Forest Service.

September 30 will also be the last day of operation for the Lincoln Living Historical farm for the 2076 season.  Beginning October 1, the farm will not be staffed, however, wayside exhibits will be available to provide information about the buildings and the site during the off-season.  Operations will resume in April 2018. The Memorial Visitor Center, with its museum, memorial halls, and park film, will continue to be open seven days a week year round.

Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is located off of Indiana Highway 162 in Lincoln City, Indiana.  For more information, please call the park at 812-937-4541.
