John F. Kennedy

On February 19, 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed the act providing for the establishment of the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial in the State of Indiana. The site preserves the boyhood and family of Abraham Lincoln and contains the original Thomas Lincoln farm, the nearby gravesite of Nancy Hanks Lincoln, and such adjoining lands as deems necessary for the establishment as the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial.
