Mrs. Lincoln's Salon: First Spouse?
The 45th President of the United States will come to the White House with a spouse. What do Americans expect of presidential spouses? How might Bill Clinton or Melania Trump meet- or change- those expectations? Join the Mary Todd Lincoln House at 7PM on Tuesday, November 1 for a Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon discussion on the role of presidential spouses, with University of Kentucky historians Dr. Kathi Kern and Dr. Mark Kornbluh facilitating the conversation.
The museum’s evening series Mrs. Lincoln’s Salon is inspired by Mrs. Lincoln’s Blue Room salons. At her intimate White House gatherings, politicians, literati, and friends discussed politics, literature, and gossip. Salons at the Mary Todd Lincoln House are held in the parlor of the museum and explore contemporary topics through the lens of history.
Space limited. Reservations recommended. Admission $10 members; $20 non-members. The Mary Todd Lincoln House is located at 578 West Main Street in downtown Lexington. Free parking located directly behind the house.
