Boy Lincoln Statue - Hodgenville, KY

Boy Lincoln Statue

In 1909, a famous statue of President Abraham Lincoln was placed in the town square of Hodgenville, KY, since he was born just a few miles down the road. 99 years later, on May 31, 2008, this statue of Lincoln was added to the other side of the square.

The bronze statue depicts a young Lincoln barefoot and lounging against a tree stump. It was made by the Daub Firmin Hendrickson Sculpture Group of California. As a seven year old, he is reading Webster's Elementary Spelling Book and has a linen satchel around his shoulder.
