Bill & Philip
Freedom is embodied in many forms.
On a cool October evening, fittingly set in the cottage where President Lincoln penned the Emancipation Proclamation, Philip and Bill exchanged vows, freely affirming their long history of love, respect and support.
Opened to the public in 2008 after extensive renovation, Lincoln Cottage is an ideal venue for intimate gatherings and a historic gem waiting to be discovered by tourists and longtime inside the Beltway residents. In fact, even Prince Charles and Camilla will stroll the hallways as part of their upcoming visit to the nation’s capital. The hospitable staff are anxious to assist with special event reservations and public tours are available seven days a week. Lincoln Cottage is a historic respite, a reminder of our forefather’s fortitude and the perfect backdrop for forming more perfect unions.
