Kentucky Hotel Reservations
Mary Todd Lincoln House
Reconnect with the history of Lexington during your visit to eastern Kentucky by touring some of the historical landmarks of the city. The Hunt-Morgan House, Latrobe's Pope Villa and the Mary Todd Lincoln House are among some of the must-see landmarks. This historical late Georgian home in downtown Lexington was the childhood residence of the wife of Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth United States President. When the doors of this home museum opened to the public in 1977, it became the first home museum in the country to honor a First Lady. Visit from nearby Paris or Georgetown.
This beautiful 1806 home was originally built as a inn until Robert S. Todd purchased the home in 1832. Mary Todd Lincoln lived in the home from her birth in 1818 until 1839, when she moved to Springfield, Illinois. The rest of the Todd family lived in the house until Robert Todd died in 1849. Tour this magnificent fourteen room home to see the family photographs and original furniture. At the end of the tour, visit the Museum Store to browse the selection of books and educational items.
