Owner description: The original house of Dr. Samuel Mudd, the physician who set the leg of John Wilkes Booth.
Reviewed 7 July 2013

My husband and I visited the house on a Wednesday, the day before the 4th of July. The admission is $7.00 per person and the tour lasts about 45 minutes. We were the only two on the tour. Mary Ann, our tour guide was excellent. She seemed to know everything about the family. Two descendants of Dr. Mudd were in the gift shop. You see the actual couch where Dr. Mudd examined John Wilkes Booth's broken leg and the room where he slept. This is a very interesting tour. Beware, there have been ghost sightings.

A nice historical home of Dr Mudd. The doctor that set the leg of Assain John W Booth, who shot Abraham Lincoln at Fords Theater. The House serves as a Museum and a small gift shopp. A very nice tour is available through the house with a very informative guide. The gift shop is operated by the decendents of Dr Mudd, where you can meet and talk to the Great Granddaughter of Dr Mudd. The tour days and hours are limited due to limited funds available to the foundation but well worth the trip, I suggest you call ahead for operational hours. There are many other sites to visit nearby, associated with the assasination. Port Tobacco Courthouse(where Booth and conspirators met), St Marys Church (Bryantown, where Dr Mudd is Buried), Mary Suratt house located in Clinton Maryland, all within 20 minutes from the house. If you are willing to go further, Fords theater, Marker where Booth was shot, and many others are within an hour drive from the house.

This historical property is well maitained and the docents have a passion for the history of the house and the events that surround the family. I would recommend you visit when the re-enactors are present, and by the way, Dr Mudd is buried close by at St Mary's Bryantown Church's graveyard.

A great place to take a tour and learn information about Dr. Mudd. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and very friendly. In December, they have a Victorian Christmas. The house is decorated very nicely and is a beautiful site to see! A must visit if you are in the area!!
