The Mary Todd Lincoln House will celebrate Mrs. Lincoln’s 198th birthday with a special evening tour "Mrs. Lincoln’s Favorite Things." This light-hearted, guided tour explores her varied tastes-- from fashion to French. Light refreshments, including her famous white cake, will complete the tour.
"Mrs. Lincoln’s Favorite Things" is a part of the museum’s themed tour series. While the standard tour covers Mary Lincoln's entire biography, themed tours take a closer look at special topics related to Mrs. Lincoln and her life. Admission $15 for individuals, $13 per person with a group of four or more, and $10 per person for members and their guests. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Space is limited. The Mary Todd Lincoln House is located at 578 West Main Street in downtown Lexington. Free parking is directly behind the house.
The Mary Todd Lincoln House is the girlhood home of Mrs. Lincoln. She brought her husband and children to visit the Todd family here in 1847. The first historic site restored to honor a first lady, the museum is operated by Kentucky Mansions Preservation Foundation, a private non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and promoting historic properties.
