If you love history you will really enjoy a tour of the Mary Todd Lincoln home. I would suggest that you buy your tickets in advance because sometimes they do sell out.
Living in central Illinois we have always been exposed to Lincoln history and find it fascinating. The Mary Todd home did not disappoint. I could tell our guide was passionate about the Lincoln and Todd history. I wish I could remember his name because he was very good. So happy this house has been restored
Lots of information stuffed into an hour's tour of this 19th century restored home. If you're interested in the Civil War or Lincoln, this is well worth the visit. The home was established by a foundation and is self-supporting, thus a fee. Tours are offered on the hour from 10 to 3. The docent was well-informed and interesting.

Well worth the time to go see. If your in Lexington for any reason stop by. The house is in excellent shape and the history is amazing.
The house is authentic so you get a good feel of what life was like for Mary Todd Lincoln when she was a young girl. Later Abraham and her visited the house and stayed for weeks and it's neat to visit somewhere where you know Abe Lincoln slept and stayed for a while.
I was not sure what to expect, as coming from England we have some very impressive historic houses, however I really enjoyed this tour. The house is quite small, and has been totally renovated and furnished in period style. It has been done very well and the result is a warm welcoming and quite homely house. Our tour guide was...

For readers, since "small" and "large" are relative terms, the house is approximately 5,500 square feet and covers thirteen rooms. And stairs are involved. Thanks for the review! More
