Located off Historic Route 7A in Manchester, Hildene was the home of Abraham Lincoln's oldest son, Robert Todd Lincoln. Hildene, which means "high" and "valley", is a Georgian Revival style house consisting of some twenty-four rooms with original furnishings, eight fireplaces and gardens that are laid out to resemble a stained-glass Gothic cathedral window. The grounds also feature a number of nature trails for hiking and cross-country skiing.

Hildene gets over 50,000 visitors a year during its mid-May to end of October season. Admission rates vary depending on what level of access you want, from simple access to the grounds to taking one of the regular (every thirty minutes) tours. See their Website for more information on this, as well as a calendar listing the many events that Hildene plays host to throughout the year. These include craft fairs, an antique and classic car show, summer youth programs and more.
