Take a step back into the 19th century on one of our guided Lincoln-Tallman House tours, explore the fascinating new exhibits at Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center or attend one of our many events such as Tallman Arts Festival, the Lincoln Fun Dash or Janesville Historic Walking Tours.

Did you know that Abraham Lincoln was once a guest in Rock County's most famous residence, the Linoln-Tallman House? Constructed between 1855 and 1857, this six-floor mansion is an excellent example of Italianate-style architecture. From the basement to the cupola, each floor offers visitors a unique glimpse of daily life in 19th century Rock County. Over seventy percent of the furniture is original, making it one of the most complete historic houses in the Midwest. From 1857 to 1915, the house was occupied by the William Morrison Tallman family. In October of 1859, Abraham Lincoln stayed at the house after a series of speeches in Beloit, forever cementing the reputation of the Lincoln-Tallman House as "where Lincoln slept".

On the guided tour of the house you'll learn about Lincoln's famous visit, discover how the house was built, why the Tallman family moved to Janesville from New York, their connection to abolitionism and the Underground Railroad.

When you visit the Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center, you'll find several wonderful exhibits, a gift shop and bookstore. Current exhibits include:

*Pauline Pottery showcases

*Pickard china gallery

*Breadbasket: Seed to Spoon exhibit

*Irish in Janesville exhibit

*Parker Pen artifacts

When I was a child this was a much bigger place. I would go here a couple of times a week, so often that I would tell the guides information that they were not aware of. I would dream of being back in the times with the beautiful Victorian dresses and horse drawn carriages. This is a great place to... 更多

... at what a treat the Tallman House tour is. Granted, the Tallmans aren't household names outside Janesville, but what I hadn't realized is that the great majority of the furnishings in the house are original-- including the bed Lincoln slept in in his visit. Our little girl loved. The tour guide was excellent. And, not surprisingly, we were the... 更多

"The Peoples President" The furniture of that era was built to the needs of the inhabitants of the home, height being of all of... 更多

The Lincoln Tallman house is a very well restored historic home. The majority of items in this 1850's house are original to the home. It is interesting that they have 3 different types of tours one can take though you have to pay for each separately. The small fee is definately worth the price. A must see if in the... 更多

Visiting the Tallman house was very informational about the past history of the Janesville area. President Lincoln's stay there was an especially interesting tid bit of interest. Take the time to look around and step back into some history.

Welcoming hosts explained the nature of the tour and grounds for this outing with our 11 and 13 year old granddaughters. My husband is a Vietnam Veteran and had free admission. The girls enjoyed the terrific interactive toy display full of "old toys" ( some of which resembled toys of our youth!) both before and after the tour. Our tour... 更多

The folks here know their history. Helpful and generous with their time, knowledge and support. The Tallman house well worth a visit, if only to see the carpet in the drawing room, based on the original design. Exhibits interesting.

The Tallman restoration serves the community in several ways- a gateway to the past and a current events location.

Our first time to visit the house.We went to see the feather trees featured during the Christmas season. The tour was very good. The house was beautiful and we were given a lot of history on the family. We will go back as we we unable to see the basement due to a stairs problem and it sounded like there... 更多
