Docents in period dress know their stuff. This is the first place John Wilkes Booth stopped after killing Lincoln, and for good reason. His closest associate was John Surratt, and this was a Confederate safe house during the war. Very interesting to see where John Surratt and John Lloyd hid the carbines for Booth and Herold to pick up on their escape. Great bookstore too, with plenty of Lincolnalia. Educational & fun!
