For history buffs like myself, a very inspiring experience through what was President Lincoln's rural home away from the White House. As we learned, it was so disruptive in Washington during the Civil War that the President commuted here daily for some peace and quiet. The guide was very passionate and informative about its historical significance. The cemetery is nearby which the President saw filing at an alarming rate from the Civil War casualties. In the welcome center there are several rooms with exhibits and films. Fascinating experience.
