Annual Surratt Society Conference


The 2020 SURRATT ANNUAL CONFERENCE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. As called for by the Governor and Maryland healthcare officials, the 21st Annual Conference of the Surratt Society and Surratt House Museum, scheduled for April 3-5,  has been cancelled due to COVID-19.  The Executive Committee of the Surratt Society will explore our options for the future of our conference and let the public know accordingly. 

Very soon, those who have registered for the April conference, will be receiving a phone call and a letter that is officially notifying them of the cancellation. In the coming weeks, registrants will receive a seperate letter containing refunds (by check) for all registration fees, as well as the fees for Friday and Sunday bus tours.  While we regret having to take this action, we think it prudent for the well-being of Surratt Society members and their guests.

The society has also been in contact with the Capital Plaza Hotel (formerly the Colony South Hotel) and any hotel reservations that were made for the conference will  be refunded. When cancelling, please note that you were with the Surratt Society Conference. We have listed  the hotel's contact information below, which can also be found on their website.
