Editorial Review

This modest home is preserved to commemorate April 14, 1865, the night that Abraham Lincoln died. Shot across the street at Ford's Theatre, President Lincoln was brought to Petersen House where he died soon after. A brief tour of the museum includes the parlor and bedroom with many original artifacts.
