We had a car show there each spring and the grounds are perfect for that. The house is full of history and makes a nice time filler while there. The mature trees are a nice touch as well. Not much more to say.

This house was beyond cool. The history in this house was very interesting and there was a lot of original items to the house that made it even better. We had a private, guided tour and the host was wonderful and full of knowledge. Highly recommended!

This is a beautiful house, but more than that David Davis was a law partner of Abraham Lincoln. The history in this area is very interesting .

A very well preserved mansion built by Judge David Davis. His wife Sarah was primarily responsible for the planning and supervised the construction while the Judge was away. Davis was a close friend of Abraham Lincoln and rode with him on the 8th Judicial Circuit. Tour guides are very knowledgeable.

This site is one of my favorites to take out-of-town guests! An unexpected treasure on the prairie, everyone enjoys its unique architecture and, of course, its connection to President Lincoln. I have visited many times over the years and never tire of hearing the family history and stories related by the tour guide. Heartfelt thanks to all who have invested their time and money to restore and maintain this estate!
