Experience It! Hildene House
Discover the 412-acre Vermont country estate of Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. The estate was built in 1905 and where Lincoln descendants lived until 1975. It features an impressive Georgian revival mansion and a variety of historic buildings. A highlight of the home is its 1,000-pipe organ which is installed in the entrance hall and is remarkably well preserved. The grounds feature a beautiful formal garden with French and Romanesque influences designed by their daughter, Jessie. But perhaps the biggest highlight of the estate is its 1903 Pullman car. Robert was Chairman of the Pullman Company, and his estate acquired this fine example of machinery in recent years. This Sunbeam car is one of the most incredible wooden Pullman cars on public display and was ridden by former President Theodore Roosevelt in 1912 during his Presidential campaign.
