Join the Dr. Mudd Society

About the Society

The Society was founded June 22, 1976 as The Society for the Restoration of the Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Home. The home was placed on the Register of Historical Places, Oct. 1, 1974. The property was deeded to the Society by the Maryland Historical Trust, March 3, 1983. On March 26, 1981 the name was changed to the Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Society, Inc. The Society is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the historic Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Home. The Society encourages research into the role that this historic site played at the time of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.

Revenue from members and visitors is contributed toward preserving the house and grounds. The history of the house, its furnishings, and the Mudd family, is proved by volunteer docents who conduct the tours. Other items of interest can be found in the exhibit building. In the gift shop visitors will find books containing historical information during this period of American History.
