Surratt House, ca.1865-1998

Surratt House, Washington, DC
Looking south from the 600 block of H Street, NW.

ca. 1865
During the Civil War, this three-story structure at 604 H Street, NW, was a boarding house owned and operated by Mrs. Mary Surratt. It was in this modest building that John Wilkes Booth and six other conspirators that included her son, John, met to plot first the kidnapping of President Lincoln then his murder. Three days after Lincoln's assassination, Mrs. Surratt was arrested at this house and taken to the Old Capitol Prison.

Today, the Surratt House is located in Chinatown and operated as Go-Lo's (Chinese) Restaurant. Although the entrance has been relocated to the ground floor and the stairs have long since been removed, the house is instantly recognizable 133 years later. A Chinese-American Lions Club has placed a plaque by the entrance of the building to note its role in history.
