I attended one of the teas for the 150 year Lincoln assassination/burial observance weekend. This was one of my most memorable experiences. The atmosphere was wonderful, the house was beautiful, the speakers very informative, the food was so delicious, and to top it off there was a wonderful breeze flowing from the front door through the house to the back...

We attended a wonderful Tea, hosted in Memorial of Lincoln's burial. The food was amazing; the home is exquisite! I would highly recommend this Home to anyone visiting the area.

I had the opportunity to spend time in the home during the Mourning Tea that was held during the Lincoln funeral event. This home is a lovely setting for any event.

Edwards Place is a perfect compliment to visiting Lincoln's Home. It gives you another perspective of where Lincoln, as well as many other significant political figures, visited and socialized. Erika Holst is extremely knowledgeable as a tour guide. You will not be disappointed to see the newly renovated and historically accurate interior.

Every time I go into Edward's Place, I feel transported in time! The house is beautiful! You can imagine living there. The real treat for me is going upstairs....the atmosphere is so original to the house! Go to the room at the front of the house....the original girl who occupied that room may give you a chill!

Walking into Edwards Place is truly like taking a step back in time. You can almost imagine yourself living back in that period of time. There are surprises around every corner, and the stories about the house and the people who lived there will leave you wanting more. It is obvious that Edwards Place is loved by the staff of...

The Edwards house I an excellent restoration...still a work in progress on the upper floors which is interesting in itself. I am an old house lover and this one was beautifully done and was a good extension of the Lincoln experience. Erika was a great guide. Worth the trip

We were directed to the Edward's Place by a gentleman at the Lincoln museum and it was well worth it. Small places show you were they found the construction and wallpaper that was original to the home. Erika was a fantastic guide. The second floor is still a work in progress but still worth seeing. Take the time and see... More

I recently enjoyed a visit to the newly renovated Edwards Place Home and it was worth the trip! This home's lower level has been fully renovated, and the attention to detail is extraordinary. Walking through Springfield's oldest home was like like taking a step back in time - the furnishings and artwork are lovely, the authentic wallpaper was a nice... More
