Create an itinerary including Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home
Nestled in a scenic village, Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home offers a glimpse into American history. The former summer home of Robert Lincoln, President Lincoln's eldest son, was completed in 1905 in the Georgian Revival style. The house was restored together with the outbuildings and gardens in 1978 when a non-profit organization bought the property. To learn more about the history of the place, watch the promotional video. Make the most of 19 km (12mi) of walking trails and visit the goat farm, teaching greenhouse, and the wooden Pullman palace car from 1903.

  • What a treat to experience this beautiful piece of history! We were fortunate enough to visit during the Christmas season and the decorations were incredible! This is a wonderful place to visit any time of the year, I can image, and we’ll definitely be back again. Don’t miss out on visiting this estate. It will transport you into history with an unspoiled mountain vista for a backdrop.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed touring the home and grounds of the Lincoln family home in Manchester VT. The grounds and gardens with views of the Green Mountains are exquisite! The mansion is lovingly kept true to the era and the docents are very knowledgeable and helpful. The Pullman car was very interesting and beautifully renovated. The goat farm was filled with well-kept goats and we watched fresh cheese being wrapped. The grounds are immaculate and there are trams available for those who prefer rides rather than walk the paths and trails of such a large estate.
