The Family

Friday, May 17, 2013


My favorite part of our Vermont trip was the stop we made in Manchester to the home of Robert Todd Lincoln, Abraham Lincoln's son.

The home is known as Hildene.

The beautiful mansion, sitting on a hilltop far off the main road, is a hidden treasure.

Because almost all of the original furniture and books are still in the home, no photographs are allowed of the inside.

I've toured a lot of old homes, but I had never been in one which had an organ installed so that the pipes reverberated throughout the home.

The garden area reminded me of Versailles, though on a miniature scale.

It was a wonderful way to spend Mother's Day!
