“Hildene visit”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Spent a morning touring the house and grounds at Hildene. A nice gem that we didn't realize was so close. Plenty of original and authentic history throughout the house. Renovated Pullman car was fun to walk through.

Have you seen the restored rail car or the new baby goats? You must see both. Wonderful experience. You can also hike on the trails.

Reviewed May 7, 2012

Robert Todd Lincoln's historically preserved summer home in the beautiful Green Mountains. A must see for historical buffs, lovely preserved and visitor friendly. Lots to see, trails to hike and farms on the huge estate.
