Mary Todd Lincoln House – Lexington, Ky

Some years ago, my hubby and I had the chance to visit The Mary Todd Lincoln House in Lexington, Kentucky. What a treat it was to walk the same floors that Mrs Lincoln walked many years ago. To touch the same stair bannister that Mr Lincoln touched and walk into the same bedroom that he stayed in on his only visit to the house.

The home has many original family artifacts from the Todd family and also Mrs Lincoln’s personal items from her later years in life.

Mary Lincoln spent many happy girlhood years in this home with her family when she lived here from 1832 to 1839 – when she moved to Springfield, Illinois. She would then soon after meet the love of her life and as the saying goes…the rest is history.
