Lincoln Bicentennial Trip - Part 9 of 10

Finally, one last look at the Mary Todd Lincoln house, this sign above the walkway pictured in part 8 of this blog. The sign's not going to last much longer.

While in Lexington, a must see is the Henry Clay estate, Ashland.

The house tours had finished for the day when we arrived so we walked around the outside a bit. Ashland, by the way, was built beginning in 1809, the same year Lincoln was born "down the road" and under quite different circumstances.

These units (below) stored food underground in a cool environment. Here's John reading about them.

And here's a side view of the famous house.
