President Lincoln's Cottage is the most significant historic site directly associated with Lincoln's presidency aside from the White House. During the Civil War, President Lincoln and his family resided here from June to November of 1862, 1863, and 1864. He made major decisions and developed the Emancipation Proclamation during the months spent at the Cottage.
After a $15 million restoration by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, President Lincoln's Cottage opened to the public for the first time in 2008.
President Lincoln’s Cottage, located on the Soldier’s Home in Washington, D.C., is owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
