Hildene Award winners

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Hildene Awards were handed out Sunday and this year there were two winners.

Hildene is the home of Robert Todd Lincoln, the only child of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln to survive to adulthood. The Manchester mansion was built in 1905. In the 1970s it was bought by a nonprofit and restored. Today it is open to the public. The home is full of artifacts belonging to the Lincolns. Every year Hildene's board of trustees gives an award to Vermonters for their contribution in land conservation or historic preservation.
