The debate rages still about the involvement of Mary Surratt, who ran a boarding house in Washington at the time. She was hanged for her supposed role in the plot. Guided tours of the house and tavern feature life in a 19th-century tavern are offered. The visitor center is full of assassination material and features good interpretation of the Booth escape route.
