President Lincoln loved baseball, and so do we! In the great tradition of Abraham Lincoln, we are honoring the game of baseball by tipping our top hats to the Washington Nationals for playing in the World Series. On 10/25, 10/26 & 10/27, we are giving a special top-hat-tip to the Nats’ ace #31 Max Scherzer by offering a 31% discount on Cottage tours and 10% off at the store for anyone who shows up wearing their Nats gear. We’ve chosen to honor Max because he and his wife Erica are advocated for the anti-human trafficking community.
To receive the discount follow these steps:
Please note: Discount only applies to adult tickets (2 max per purchase)

One popular myth has it that Lincoln as Lincoln lay dying at the Peterson house, he turned to his friend Abner Doubleday and used his last death rattle to utter the command, “don’t let baseball die.” While that story is untrue (and ridiculous), it is true that Lincoln was fond of the sport and found it a needed break from the burdens of a wartime presidency.
