Great tour, mostly self guided, with well places guides to answer questions and provide information. The trams were wonderful to get around the sprawling estate. The Pullman car was amazing to see and hear the history. Recommend stopping here if you are close.

We were impressed with the way Lincoln family home was introduced. The property became original and sincere storyteller about people and their time, the country, past and present of it. The story told was both teaching and entertaining. Our appreciation goes to the people who brought it to us.

Nice place from a few hours in a beautiful wooded setting. The tours are started with a talk then you're on your own. Would recommend.
