  • The Petersen Boarding House is located across the street from the Ford's Theatre, and this is the place where President Lincoln spent the last few hours. It is part of the Ford's Theater Museum. Visit...  more »
  • This house is also known for having hosted, immediately after the shootings, President Lilcon who died. According to legend it would have been said. It's history now. Very exciting place.

  • This is a very interesting place to see in Washington for its history. It can be a little sad. But it's great to see a house from that era that had been preserved for future generations. It gives you a sense of how people lived at that time. I think it should not be missed if you're visiting the Ford theatre across the street. It's a big part of the story.
  • More interesting to me than Ford's Theater. Gave me the chills and I got a bit choked up seeing the bed on which Lincoln died. It really is shorter than he was. Also they have the last known photo of his casket. Sad but honorably done.
