Experience the best of both worlds with President Lincoln’s Cottage. Nestled in the heart of the city, this historic site boasts an expansive outdoor space that provides a breath of fresh air with the convenience of an in-town location.

This award-winning venue boasts a rich history, having served as the warm weather home to one of America’s greatest leaders, President Abraham Lincoln. While living there for more than a quarter of his presidency, Lincoln made crucial decisions about the Civil War and developed the Emancipation Proclamation.

The Gothic-Revival style home features handsome woodwork, marble fireplaces, an inviting veranda, and expansive lawns bordered by mature trees. At President Lincoln’s Cottage, we believe in providing a personal, tailored experience that makes your day unique. Whether you envision an intimate gathering or a grand affair, our indoor and outdoor spaces with tent rental options can accommodate your vision.

Our most popular package includes an outdoor ceremony on the picturesque south lawn, where you and your partner can exchange vows with the Cottage as a backdrop. After the ceremony, guests will be invited inside to sip cocktails and explore this iconic historic home. With tour guides on hand, your guests will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the rich history of the space and Lincoln’s time here. As the day transitions into evening, guests will be ushered to an elegant tent on one of our expansive lawns for dinner and dancing.

Other perks include ample free parking, on-site museum staff, ADA accessibility, and, unlike other venues, the Cottage only hosts one wedding per day.
