  • Beautiful grounds! Loved learning more about the history. The Pullman train was so amazing! The staff was very attentive and helpful. My dad and I had a great time!
  • Fascinating place. Lincoln's son did a fabulous job sitting and constructing the house. Go on a good day as much of what you see is spread out around the grounds. There is a tram to help you get around. It is handicapped accessible and for that they get kudos.
