HODGENVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The new superintendent at Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park will meet with visitors during an open house this week.

Catherine Bragaw plans to attend an open house Wednesday at the park's visitor center, officials said in a news release. The free event is open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

Bragaw, who has spent more than 30 years with the park service, took over at the Lincoln Birthplace in November.

National Park Service Southeast Regional Director Robert A. Vogel said in a statement when Bragaw was named that her passion for political science, public history and civic engagement would help her manage how the park interprets the early years of the nation's 16th president.

Bragaw says she's looking forward to meeting visitors and those from nearby communities.
