      Located 10 miles northeast of Abraham Lincoln's birthplace is Knob Creek Farm; the family moved here in 1811 - young Abe was aged just two - and stayed for five years before moving on again, to Indiana. This reconstruction is set in an idyllic location of fertile fields, steep wooded hills and Knob Creek itself, into which a young Abe fell and may well have drowned had it not been for the actions of his friend Austin Gollagher, who hauled the future president to safety.

        This isn't the Knob Creek that most of think of in this area of the south!
