The Mary Todd Lincoln House, located on West Main Street in downtown Lexington, Kentucky was the family home of the future wife of the 16th President. In 1977, the girlhood home opened to the public and became the first house museum in America to honor a First Lady. Originally built between 1803-1806 to serve as an inn, the property became the home of politician and businessman, Robert S. Todd in 1832. Daughter Mary Todd, born in December1818, resided here until she moved to Springfield, Illinois in 1839 to live with her elder sister. There she met and married Abraham Lincoln, whom she brought to visit this home in the fall of 1847.
