We’ve visited twice this summer, and we’ve gotten very different talks by the docents each time, which was a little surprising. I would have expected a more standard talk that takes care to cover the same key facts. But the guides were very personable, and the house is interesting, particularly the uninsulated room above the kitchen that was apparently the bedroom for one or more slaves at the house.
What a great place to trace John Wilkes Booth and David Herold's escape route. Thanks to the terrific guide, I think her name was Lynn, you are transported back in time. A thorough tour of the house, information on the Surratt family as well as the time Booth spent here. Very inexpensive for the quality of the content given. Adult admission is five dollars. I would recommend anyone interested in American history to visit.
