Mary Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Thing# 17. Take a photo of Bellevue Place where Mary Todd Lincoln stayed and visit her room at the Batavia Depot Museum.

The public (and that includes us) are not allowed inside Bellevue, but we had an exciting five minutes standing outside and looking at the building. Linda thinks she read that Mary Todd Lincoln stayed in the upper right room on the third floor.

We then drove a couple blocks to the Batavia Depot Museum where we were allowed inside. Our primary purpose was to see the bed and dresser from Mary’s room at Bellevue

… but we also had fun looking at the other displays. My daughter and Kelli sent telegram messages to each other and my daughter made a friend.

We toured the caboose, then walked across the street for dessert at McDonald’s.

It was raining when we came out, but we didn’t let that stop us from wandering about the Riverwalk.

OK, it wasn’t the most exciting adventure, but we had a good time and we can say we’ve been there and we took enough pictures so we never have to go back.
