Mary Todd Lincoln House Sets New Attendance Record

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Lexington’s Mary Todd Lincoln House is reporting its highest attendance figures to date.  11,212 people visited the museum in the last fiscal year, higher than any amount since they started keeping records in 1982. 

“I gotta give a big kudos to the Lexington Convention and Visitors Bureau. Last fall, they moved to Main Street, just a hop and a skip from us, and I think that their presence on Main Street as our neighbor has really helped us with our attendance figures," said Executive Director Gwen Thompson.
