President Lincoln’s Cottage recently received some rave reviews from visitors who heard about us through Groupon. Read what they had to say (below).
What a treasure for DC! We’ve been to other Lincoln historic sites (Lexington, KY; Manchester Center, VT etc) and didn’t know about this one right here. Beautiful grounds, gorgeous buildings and we learned a lot about Lincoln’s Presidential years! -April 20, 2013
Curtis, our tour guide, did an outstanding job guiding us through President Lincoln’s cottage. We liked being in a small group! Curtis was able to answer all our questions and to engage our imaginations with why President Lincoln’s cottage was so important to President Lincoln and his family. We definitely will bring our out of town guests and we will also encourage our DC neighbors to visit this historic home. -April 19, 2013
We enjoyed our visit to President Lincoln’s Cottage. As we toured the cottage, we were able to imagine Lincoln himself walking, talking and sleeping in these very rooms. Our guide was enthusiastic and really touched on Lincoln’s humanity, so we learned so much about this man…not just the things most of us already have studied. The museum was also interesting, and we were lucky to be able to see a signed copy of the Emancipation Proclamation which will be there until the end of April. -April 16, 2013
A hidden gem! This was such an interesting tour – I was fascinated by how much of the original house still remained and how the renovations were done, and how the family lived, and all the details about how people could just knock on his door to talk with him. I learned a lot about how he was conflicted about the war, and so many other facts. The tour made him and his family and that time during the war more real for me. -April 15, 2013
I had an EXCELLENT tour guide (Michelle) who clearly loved talking about the house, the history, and the life of Lincoln. I especially loved how the house continues to educate on modern day slavery through its exhibit on human trafficking. The organization clearly lives its mission. I’ve recommended the tour to several people already. -April 13, 2013
It was a lovely event. Cottage is special and the tour was great as it involved us – the visitors. The staff on tour and upon signing in were VERY friendly and for sure seemed to enjoy their job and wanted to make all feel their feelings of this special place. Our family LOVED being there and sincerely hope to come back soon. Thank you one and all. -March 11, 2013
