Historic Hildene Tour

Tour beautiful historic Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln’s Manchester home.  Robert was the only child of President Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to maturity.  He first visited Manchester as a young man in the summer of 1864 when he came to the Equinox Hotel to meet his mother and his brother Tad. Abraham Lincoln had not visited with his wife and children, and didn't live to see Hildene, nor did his wife.  Decades later Robert returned to purchase hundreds of acres of land upon which to build what he would call his ancestral home.  Built in 1905, Robert and his wife Mary, called their stately new home Hildene.  Visit anytime of year, with the purchase of our discounted Guest Tickets (also available at the Welcome Center).  In addition to visiting the authentically preserved home, see the restored Pullman Sunbeam train car, goat dairy and Dene Farm.  Hike the miles of walking trails or take the tram. In June, the Celebration of Peonies is a sight to behold!  During the winter holiday season, the house is exquisitely decorated as it would have been for the family so many years ago.  After exploring all of the Hildene property, enter the jam-packed Museum Shop where you can purchase goat cheese made from Hildene goats' milk, Vermont-made products, relevant books and many other gifts.  The shop is especially festive during the holidays.  Call us at 802-362-2739 to make your reservation and purchase Hildene admission tickets (also available during or after check-in).  If you book on our website, add a note about adding tickets to the 'additional comments' section.
