Carl Sandburg State Historic Site was the birthplace and boyhood home of author Carl Sandburg in Galesburg, Illinois, United States. It is operated by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. The site contains the cottage Sandburg was born in, a visitor center with a museum about Carl Sandburg, a museum shop, a small theater, and the rock under which he and his wife Lilian are buried.
The facility was closed to visitors as a result of budget cuts, but it is scheduled to reopen by July 1, 2009, as part of Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's merger of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
