Lincoln House

If you like historic homes—or a bit of presidential history—you may want to visit Hildene.  This stately 1905 mansion was once the home of Robert Lincoln, the only surviving son of President Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd. Hildene offers a glimpse into life at the turn of the century. The rooms are filled with history and there are sections devoted to Lincoln himself. Though the 16th president never set foot in Hildene, his legacy is certainly present. Hildene is about more than the mansion, too. The adjoining European style gardens are magnificent and make for a sweet spot to walk around. There are also impressive views out over the valley from behind the home. The 412-acre estate is also home to a working farm, extensive walking trails, and a 1903 Pullman train car exhibit, among other attractions.
