Lovely well restored and kept estate. I've read a couple books recently about the Lincolns and enjoyed walking through the home and seeing the collectables. The grounds and gardens are beautiful, with scenic views of the surrounding countryside decked out in fall colors.

An amazing piece of our American history to see. Our group of 47 especially enjoys this stop on all our East coast trips because we are from The Land of Lincoln. The house is so beautiful and they've recently purchased and restored a Pullman car for everyone to enjoy. The staff can't be beat and the gift shop is lovely

It's amazing what volunteers have done/are doing to restore, maintain and manage this property. The parterre gardens are interesting in the fall, but they must be spectacular when the flowers are in full bloom!

Fantastic house. Interesting displays. Interesting history. Liked the Minton china as we are originally from Stoke on Trent England where it would have been made. In fact my husband used to work for Royal Doulton and Minton. Loved the organ! Fantastic setting with fabulous views. Unfortunately, the weather was not so good but you could still appreciate the views. Pullman very interesting and honest display of the Pullman Porters and union information. Thought provoking. Great. Recommend to anyone.
