We spent a wonderful morning touring Lincoln's house and gardens. The Pullman Car should not be missed. The grounds are pristine and the docents very informative. We were pleased by the balanced history of the Pullman Company.

The visit to this historic homestead is as wonderful. The preservation of life here is amazing. The grounds are beautiful and make for a great place to picnic as well. Smoke places to spend money here.

A must see when you are in Manchester Vermont. Has a fascinating history and the staff is very friendly. There are shuttles for those that can't/don't want to walk.

Definitely worth the visit. The story behind the only son to live to adulthood of Abraham Lincoln is one not really known. Individually, the pullman, the house and the barn don't seem like much, but in context of the family story, it was a very...More
