Apple Tree Down at Lincoln’s Knob Creek Farm

Here we are at Knob Creek Farm in Kentucky where Abraham Lincoln lived for 5 years until he was 7 and their family had to move away. This apple tree was huge and very old and recently had to be cut down behind the log cabin where the Lincoln’s lived. I like to think that it was about 190 years old and was there at the time Abraham Lincoln was. Apple trees are very tough and slow growing and this one hung on even though it only had life left on the outer rim and was hollow in the center.
