Hildene is an historic home built in 1905 by President Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln's son, Robert Todd as a summer residence. The Welcome Center, Museum Store, House and exhibits are open year-round 9:30 to 4:30. In the winter months, the Ski Pavilion adjacent to the Welcome Center houses a rental shop.
