The Lincoln Heritage Trail begins in the heart of the Wabash Valley in Westport Illinois, just across from Vincennes Indiana, where a monument commemorates the Lincoln family's move from Indiana to Illinois in 1830.
The Embarras River Near Greenup was the site of a covered bridge built by Abe and Thomas Lincoln and Dennis Hanks. The original bridge was 200 feet long.
Reconstruction of the bridge began in 1998 and was dedicated in 2000. The covered bridge is on Cumberland Road just West of Greenup, between Rt. 40 and Interstate 70 in Cumberland County. A.K.A the Jackson Cover Bridge.
