Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park preserves two separate farm sites in LaRue County, Kentucky where Abraham Lincoln was born and lived early in his childhood. He was born at the Sinking Spring site south of Hodgenville and remained there until the family moved to the Knob Creek Farm northeast of Hodgenville when he was 2 years old, living there until he was 7 years old. The Sinking Spring site is the location of the park visitor center. A Beaux-Arts neo-classical Memorial Building was designed by John Russell Pope for the birthplace site. On February 12, 1909, the centennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, the cornerstone was laid by President Theodore Roosevelt and the building was dedicated on November 9, 1911, by President William Howard Taft. A reconstructed log cabin is within the memorial.

As a potato chip fanatic I have to try every unique chip that comes across my various internet feeds. With this in mind I ordered four varieties of Kauffman’s homemade chips from Kauffman’s Dutch Market.
The first chip I tried was their standard chip. These were maybe the best chips I have ever had. They were crisp and had a very nice home cooked flavor; exceptional.
The kettle cooked chips were also fantastic with the hard crunch you associate with your typical kettle cooked chip but not as firm as a Cape Cod chip. The same exceptional home cooked flavor.
The Salt and Vinegar chip continued the high quality of the line. The vinegar flavor was very pronounced much more evident than in your standard supermarket salt and vinegar chip.
The dark chips had a pronounced toasty flavor typical of the type but with the same high quality taste. These are some of the best chips on the market and you can not go wrong with any of the varieties.
Mammoth Cave National Park is an American national park in central Kentucky, encompassing portions of Mammoth Cave, the longest cave system known in the world. Since the 1972 unification of Mammoth Cave with the even-longer system under Flint Ridge to the north, the official name of the system has been the Mammoth–Flint Ridge Cave System. The park was established as a national park on July 1, 1941, a World Heritage Site on October 27, 1981, and an international Biosphere Reserve on September 26, 1990. The park’s 52,830 acres are located primarily in Edmonson County, with small areas extending eastward into Hart and Barren counties. The Green River runs through the park, with a tributary called the Nolin River feeding into the Green just inside the park. Mammoth Cave is the world’s longest known cave system with more than 400 miles of surveyed passageways,which is nearly twice as long as the second-longest cave system, Mexico’s Sac Actun underwater cave.

The memorial is located at 733 Lake Road near South Fork, Pennsylvania, about 10 miles northeast of Johnstown. The memorial preserves the remains of the dam and portions of the former Lake Conemaugh bed, along with the farm of Elias Unger and the clubhouse of the South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club which owned the dam and reservoir.
