For those interested in history in general and Abraham Lincoln in particular, the Lincoln Cottage is a quietly impressive place to visit. It's off the beaten path; you have to make an effort to get there; and it requires use of your imagination (aided by an excellent guide, in our case). Tours are by reservation, and it's wise to get there about a half-hour before to go through the excellent exhibits giving background on the Civil War in Washington before the tour.
