HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The National Park Service is breaking ground this month on restoration and improvements on the central Kentucky parkland where Abraham Lincoln lived as a young boy.

Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park Superintendent Bill Justice says the idea is to protect and preserve the structures at Knob Creek. He says the project has been in the works for years.

The groundbreaking is at 1:30 p.m. EDT Oct. 25 at the Boyhood Home Unit at Knob Creek. There will be no parking at the site, but shuttle service to Knob Creek from LaRue County High School will be available beginning at 11 a.m.
