Each show is meant to be inspired by some aspect, silly or serious, of Lincoln's legacy or the history of the cottage.

In September 2019 we're on the silly side: We honor Lincoln's status as the first bearded president by presenting a showcase of bearded comedians. October's show is a pun competition celebrating Lincoln's love of wordplay, and November's theme is TBA.

About the Cottage

President Lincoln's Cottage is an historic site and museum located in the Petworth neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C. President Lincoln’s Cottage first opened to the public in February 2008. It is the only place the public can experience the history of Abraham Lincoln’s public and private life where he lived and worked for over a quarter of his presidency. While in residence at the Cottage, Lincoln visited with wounded soldiers, spent time with self-emancipated men, women and children, and developed the Emancipation Proclamation. The human cost of the Civil War surrounded him, undoubtedly impacted his thinking, and strengthened his resolve to challenge the status quo. Through innovative guided tours, exhibits and programs, we use Lincoln’s example to inspire visitors to take their own path to greatness, and preserve this place as an authentic, tangible connection to the past and a beacon of hope for all who take up Lincoln’s unfinished work.
