This is a must-see if you are visiting Lexington. There is a lot of historical information about the Todd family, including Mary. It took us about an hour to see and read everything. Ask questions of the docents. They know their stuff.


I took my kids to their event on President’s Day and we really enjoyed it! The house is beautifully maintained, the staff were engaging and knowledgeable, and the kid activities were a lot of fun. Highly recommend!


Our docent Sharon was amazing!! We loved the tour!! The antiques were magnificent! An experience everyone should have!


My 86-year old father and I were the first in the door when it opened on a Friday morning in November. While we hadn’t booked a guided tour, we had the docent, who was very knowledgable, to ourselves for about 20 minutes. Although it is hard for him to climb stairs, he was able to manage with a little support from me.


This was a self-guided tour of the lower and upper floors of the house. The exhibits were interesting and educational! The home was lovely and the guides were helpful and informative during my tour!


Learning the family history of Mary Todd Lincoln and how that complicated things significantly for Lincoln in the Civil War.


This is the house Mary Todd lived in as a teenager. They have done a nice job of trying to recreate the space she lived in. While it is a self guided tour there was a docent on both floors to answer questions. Very pleasant stop while traveling.


Hey, this was a great place to visit! Jacob and Will were terrific, very knowledgeable and friendly! They know and present well the history concerning the Todds and Lincolns. The house is good size and has many actual furniture pieces and artifacts from the family (or like item antiques) to make it true to the period. Also, make sure you leave through the back of the house. Their gift shop in located in the warming kitchen of the house that can be found after you leave through the back door, plus a nice garden.


The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. The home had many original pieces which were discussed.


Very cool to see. They have pieces that the Todd/Lincoln family have been gifted back to the house. The gift shop was a great stop too.
