Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home

Tour the home where three generations of Lincolns lived…

It was built by presidential son, Robert Lincoln, in 1905, during his tenure as president of the Pullman Palace Car Co., the world’s largest manufacturing company in the world at the time.

Guests experience the 412 acre estate’s Welcome Center, The Museum Store; home and gardens; Lincoln exhibit, including one of  Abe’s iconic stovepipe hats; 1903 Pullman car, Sunbeam, “Many Voices” exhibit (a site on the Vermont African American Heritage Trail); goat dairy and cheese-making facility.

The sustainable agriculture project in The Dene features a new visitor friendly multi-use greenhouse designed for teaching and supporting the farm operation; pollinator and Bobolink sanctuary, observation deck, 600’ wetland floating boardwalk; and miles of trails.  Exciting things happen when a historic site with deep roots in the past commits to putting new roots, literally and figuratively, in the good earth for the future.
