Mary Todd Lincoln House - Review
Mary Todd Lincoln House was where Mary Todd, the wife of President Abraham Lincoln grew up. The house was built in the early years of the 19th century and Mary Todd was living here till 1839. In that year, Todd shifted to Springfield to live with her sister. Post her marriage to Lincoln, they would often stay in this house when visiting Lexington. This is the first historic site restored to commemorate a First Lady. It was converted into a museum and opened to the public in 1977. Pieces of furniture and other items on display have been donated over the years by the Todd and Lincoln family. The museum tries its best to recreate the house the way it was during Mary Todd’s childhood. The museum has a garden that houses some of the most delicate plants and herbs.

Mary Todd Lincoln House, Lexington Reviews
Tour was fantastic- the tour was informative. My husband and I learned so much about the life of Mary and some about Abe Lincoln too. Great to learn more about a part of history! Some original time pieces in the house, although it was many other things before it was restored back to the home of the Todd's, so lots of things were lost. Would recommend the tour!
Such a lovely tour. I really learned a lot about Mary Todd Lincoln and her family. The house contains many pieces that were owned by the family, and they have restored the house beautifully. The tour was an hour long and our tour guide, Tom, did a great job asking if there were any questions. He was very knowledgeable and created an excellent experience!
Loved the tour . Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and explained everything. The house is beautiful. Would recommend touring it if you get the chance.
If you enjoy touring historical homes, you will definitely enjoy this tour. The tour guide did a great job and told several engaging anecdotes about Mary Todd and the Lincoln family. The home is well-preserved, and great care has been taken to acquire many authentic family artifacts.
Great tour! Our tour guide was great. I loved how she spoke openly and comfortably about the slaves who resided or may have resided in the home as well as the family's possible view of racism.
