NPS Passport Program


A fun way to Look for Lincoln in the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area! The Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area was designated by Congress to preserve and tell the story of Abraham Lincoln's life and times. Did you know that as a National Heritage Area we work in partnership with National Park Service? We work with Lincoln Home National Historic Site to tell the story of Lincoln's life in Illinois throughout the 42 counties of the National Heritage Area.

Explore the communities where Lincoln lived, worked, and traveled through the Passport to Your National Parks program in the Abraham Lincoln National Heritage Area. Our program allows you to collect cancellation stamps at specific sites in participating Looking for Lincoln Communities, all while learning more about our 16th President.

The Passport to Your National Parks program is a voluntary program that nearly all parks within the National Park Service (NPS) participate. You can purchase an official NPS Passport book at several sites and begin recording your visits to NPS sites by stamping your passport with a rubber cancellation stamp. The cancellations, similar to those received in an international passport, record the name of the passport community and the date it was visited. The stamps also provide a record of your adventures.

Visitor Note: Passport stamps are free to collect at each location. For venues with an entry fee, the stamp will be available prior to entering the venue. Of course, you may want to further your adventures and expand your journey while you're there. Feel free to call ahead if you have questions.
