Lincoln's Bedroom

This was Lincoln's bedroom from 1855 to 1861. When the Lincolns moved their sleeping quarters from the first floor to the second, they moved into separate bedrooms. Following the custom of the day, if the family's finances allowed, the husband and wife were given their own bedrooms. In fact, throughout the 1900s, most Presidents and First Ladies have had separate bedrooms in the White House - a tradition established in the 1800s.
