Decided to do the tour on a whim after visiting Lincoln's Old Soldiers Home. A bit of a drive, but made you think about whose tracks you were following in. Friendly staff, 7.00 for the admission seems reasonable enough for a tour of the grounds...More

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 open on a particular day, and the fellow who answered...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 time and speaking to a family friend. Rated up there...More

History well preserved & well presented. Reenactments occur frequently and make you feel like you are back in the 1860's.

I took a tour of Dr Mudd's home when I was on the John Wilkes Booth Escape Tour. As a young girl I was fascinated with the Lincoln Assassination and the role Dr Mudd played. The property is lovely and the back is what is...More

This is an interesting historical site, and the house is well preserved. However, admission is $7 for an adult, which would be fine if the tour was worthwhile. Our tour guide was one of the worst I've encountered. She was not well organized, frazzled, toured...More

As a history buff, particularly of the Civil War, I had to stop. It is an easy drive and very accessible. It has plenty of parking and a low fee for the tour. The house has been in the Mudd family since the mid-1800s so...More
