“the Lincoln family home”
His father was born in a log cabin and called from the humblest rank in life to preside over our nation during the most momentous period of its history. One generation later, Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to adulthood, became Chairman of the Pullman Company, the largest manufacturing corporation at the turn of the 20th century. He built his Georgian Revival mansion in 1905 in the scenic village of Manchester. It became home to only Lincoln descendants until 1975, longer than any other Lincoln residence. It is the Great American Story.
We didn’t have time to do the in home tour or dairy farm, etc. but hoped to visit the outside garden and get close to the home for pictures. This isn’t possible without paying the entry fee of $23 thus the lower rating.
Hildene is certainly not a place to be missed the house and it's furnishings are amazing.
Be the first to add a review to the Hildene.
