Hildene, The Lincoln Family Home, was home to Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to adulthood. He built his Georgian Revival mansion in 1905 in the scenic village of Manchester. It became home to only Lincoln descendants until 1975, longer than any other Lincoln residence.

Each year, Hildene's staff and volunteers welcome thousands of guests daily to the Lincoln home, grounds and walking trails.

Hildene is a stop on the Vermont African American Heritage Trail.
