    One of my favorite places to take out-of-town guests when they are visiting Southern Maryland. The place is easy to find, inexpensive, and filled with history. One time I called to see if they were op...  more »

    Wow!! I expected a barely furnished house and a plaque. Received an almost 1 hour personal tour by a fascinating, extremely informed woman. I hated history in school but found this like going back in ...  more »

    Step back into history at the Mudd house in Southern Maryland. Preserved over a hundred years the house and property reflect a period in American history not often thought of. Dr. Mudd who had assisted John Wilkes Booth with his broken leg after the assassination of President Lincoln. It was here in this house that Booth stopped after leaving Lady Surratt's. Later federal a would seize the house and charge Mudd with conspiracy in the murder. Mudd would serve time in a Florida island jail but later be released early for assisting during a outbreak of mosquito carried disease. During his stay there he constructed furniture pieces in the wood shop as many prisoners would have done. Some of those pieces of furniture have found their way back to the Mudd home and will be spoke of on the tour. The tour guides are amazing. One of them in fact is my relative. Let them immerse you in history and take it all in. They'll have a lot to tell you. Sometimes the kids can get restless, but it's a wonderful place to visit. There's a gift shop, Christmas time activities and even ghost stories. -Hatcher

    I saw the sign while driving down Route 5. I stopped here in the early 90s and decided to see it again. Well long story short it was closed. Has a fence around it so you cannot even get close. So a waste of time. But I did see it from the road.

    Interesting history. New outdoor signage fills in some missing parts of the John Wilks booth time line

    Fantastic, fascinating tour. A wonderful young lady named Kate gave a very interesting and comprehensive tour. Kate obviously loves her work. My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased!

    I use to pass this house everyday on my way to work on the long back road to get to Keller Bus Company. The buses that take MAryland Commuters from Waldorf, MD to their jobs in downtown DC.
