Wonderful discovery about history I didn't know. Information about Mary Todd Lincoln and the impact of her illness on her son. So much history about Lincoln and the Pullman cars. A must visit, then on to the Equinox Hotel.

Beautiful and historic property, yet personal and inviting. The staff here are great, and can answer questions before you ask. Our tram driver in particular was very informative. The grounds are gorgeous, and very walkable. The addition of the Pullman car was nice.
