Abraham Lincoln was born near Hodgenville in Kentucky, so naturally the log cabin is a national historic site.


The settlement was originally called Frank's Ford in honour of Stephen Frank, a frontiersman killed in 1780 during a skirmish with Native Americans at a ford in the river.

The State Capitol is modelled after the United States Capitol.


George Rogers Clark founded the first settlement here in 1778; an area once inhabited by the Shawnee people.

Originally located on Corn Island in the Ohio River, the settlement was moved to its present site in 1779, and named after Louis XVI of France; in gratitude for French assistance during the American War of Independence.
