Mary Todd Lincoln - "Preserve the Union"
featuring Jessica Michna as the First Lady

Tuesday, August 18 - 2 p.m.

Historian and actress Jessica Michna will give a compelling and emotionally enthralling performance as Mary Todd Lincoln, recalling her early years and education, and meeting and marrying the future President. Mary will introduce the audience to life in Washington, share stories about her boys, and detail the family’s personal tragedies, concluding on that fateful day in 1865. After Jessica’s presentation, stay for refreshments and casual tours of Cedar Crest’s independent living apartments.


Cedar Crest events are usually located on the Terrace Level of the Independent Living apartment areas. It's for your convenience that we recommend you park close to the apartment buildings. There is a surface parking lot connected to the apartments. It can be reached via the first driveway on your right if you are coming from the North (via State St.), or the third driveway on your left if you arrive from the South (via Kellogg Ave). Watch for blue/green flags near the designated driveway. NOTE: GPS systems will route you to the Main Entrance of the Skilled Care Center. Parking near that area will require you to walk farther to the event site than using the convenient access off the apartment parking lot.
