Tudor Hall: John Wilkes Booth's Boyhood Home

Tudor Hall
, the family home of the Booths in Bel Air, Harford County, Maryland, was purchased by Harford County in August 2006 after it failed to meet the minimum asking price at auction.

The county executive was committed to acquiring the property and utilizing it as an educational facility because of its history, its architecture, and the theatrical heritage of the notable Booths, a true “first family” of the American theatre.

For more information about the current status of Tudor Hall, see: The Historical Society of Harford County web site and the Spirits of Tudor Hall blog.
