President Lincoln's Cottage

Located on a picturesque hilltop on the grounds of the historic Soldiers’ Home in Northwest Washington, D.

Located on a picturesque hilltop on the grounds of the historic Soldiers’ Home in Northwest Washington, D.C., President Lincoln’s Cottage offers a unique, historic, and award-winning setting for special events. This beloved home was used by the Lincoln family and served as an important entertainment venue during the Civil War. While in residence, Lincoln visited with wounded soldiers, spent time with self- emancipated men women and children, and developed the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, the Cottage, its surrounding grounds, and an array of adjacent historic buildings are available to the public for the first time. Proceeds from your event help preserve this National Monument and National Historic Landmark. Our offerings include ample free parking, handicap accessibility, museum staff/event coordination, and discounts for nonprofit and government groups.
