About the Surratt Society

The Surratt Society is a volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of history involving the Surratt House.

Founded in 1975, the Surratt Society encourages research into the role that this historic site played in the events surrounding the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and into life in mid-19th century Southern Maryland.
