MANCHESTER - On Sunday, June 16, more than 500 guests visited the Lincoln family's estate to celebrate Community Day at Hildene. They were welcomed by a staff eager to either introduce them to the historic site for the first time or welcome them back to see how much it has grown since last they visited.

On this day when admission was free, the crowd took full advantage of all there was to see and do from the Lincoln family's home to The Rowland Agricultural Center at Hildene Farm to the Pullman car - Sunbeam - and the many gardens in bloom on what turned out to be a good weather day. The Welcome Center was teeming with activity with viewers watching the introductory video and enjoy food samplings.

Hildene is open daily year round from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Learn more about The Lincoln Family Home at www.hildene.org or find Hildene on Facebook.
