On Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday, his namesake park in Hodgenville was bedecked with yellow streamers.

The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site looked like a “war zone” after the Jan. 27 ice storm, said Sandy Brue, chief of interpretation and resource management. It was without electricity and closed for several days as workers cleared the paths of limbs and debris.
