Designed by George Honig, artist and sculptor, under the direction of the Spencer County Historical Society and The Rockport City Park Board, the Lincoln Pioneer Village was constructed during the period from 1935 to 1937 with government funds by the Works Projects Administration.  This memorial to Abraham Lincoln’s 14 formative years (1816-1830) spent in Spencer County consists primarily of structures and other artifacts which represent the life and times of Lincoln, his pioneer neighbors and friends.
