Presidential son Robert Todd Lincoln built his Manchester summer retreat here in 1905. Home to Lincoln descendants until 1975, this Georgian Revival mansion features family furnishings, a 1,000-pipe organ, landscaping by an Olmsted protégé, and a restored 1888 Pullman rail passenger car, a legacy of Lincoln’s presidency of the firm. Voted Best Lincoln Link.

American history shines in the splendid story of Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln’s first son, who built Hildene in 1905, 41 years after vacationing in Manchester as a boy. Tours span the estate buildings and grounds, the latter available for picnicking and walking. Voted BEST HISTORIC REPLICATION.
