Dr. Samuel A. Mudd House

Dr. Samuel A. Mudd House

Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, the country doctor who set the broken leg of President Abraham Lincoln's assassin, resided here. John Wilkes Booth fractured his leg as he left from the Ford's Theater presidential box after shooting Preseident Lincoln on Good Friday, April 14, 1865, and attempted to flee through Southern Maryland. Today the two-story early Victorian frame farmhouse, furnished with original and period pieces, is open to the public and tours are offered by costumed docents. The Mudd House also showcases a Civil War Display and Farm Museum.  The Mudd House is a featured location on Maryland's Civil War Trail - John Wilkes Booth: Trail of an Assassin.
