The Mary Todd Lincoln House is the girlhood home of the the future first lady and wife of the 16th president Abaham Lincoln. The Lincolns visited her family her after their marriage.

Opened in 1977, The museum is the first historic site to tell the story of a first lady. Sophisticated and well educated, Mary Todd Lincoln’s success in the White House seemed assured. Yet few women have endured as much controversy and tragedy. Visit her family home to learn more at this fascinating woman!

  • An hour long tour in a beautifully restored historic landmark with a well-informed tour guide. What more could a history buff ask for. 
  • It's obvious that the guides at the Mary Todd Lincoln House love their job. The tour, although only about an hour and carefully controlled, is delivered with great interest, passion, and investment. T...  read more »
  • Get there early for your tour to reserve a spot. On our day we were the last four in that hour's tour and glad to have it work out. The tour was well done, professional, fun, friendly and informative. The house itself is a good spot to begin a visit in that it gives the real feel of how things were in Lexington. Totally recommend it.
  • Drove 2 and a half hours to this place only to find that the final tour of the day which was limited to 15 people already had 14 in it. There were 2 of us and they would not make an exception. The young woman at the front was quite rude. A similar thing happened to me here a few years ago. The history may be wonderful here but I don't plan to try this again. They can kiss my ass! I rarely give only 1 star. If you go here I hope you get in and enjoy it but consider yourself warned.
  • Historic home of Mary Todd Lincoln. Knowledgeable tour guide. Elegant mansion built at a time when indoor plumbing was a luxury.
  • I thought it was interesting addition to the historical accounts we learn in school.
