Treating an Assassin
— John Wilkes Booth - Escape of An Assassin —This house was the home of Dr. Samuel Alexander Mudd and his wife, Sarah Frances Dyer.

Afterward, as Booth rested in an upstairs bedroom, Mudd rode into Bryantown, then returned home late in the afternoon to find his visitors departing.
