Hildene is a 24-room Georgian revival mansion built by Robert Todd Lincoln, the eldest son of Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. In 1902, the Lincolns purchased several hundred acres of land in Manchester, Vermont, where they built the country mansion for use as a summer home. The estate included gardens, lawns, and woodlands. When staying at Hildene, Robert especially enjoyed golf and amateur astronomy. In 1911 Robert sold his home in Chicago and bought a three-story colonial brick mansion in Washington, D.C. From this time on it was Robert's custom to go to Hildene in the spring and return to Washington in the fall. The Lincolns made the trip back and forth in their private Pullman car. Hildene remained in the Lincoln family until 1975.
