Families, tourist and Washington, DC residents have the opportunity of touring the Petersen House. Acquired by Ford’s Theater Society in 2007, the Petersen House features permanent exhibits on two levels of the three-level and basement townhome. The exhibits in the Petersen House show the aftermath of Lincoln’s death and the evolution of Lincoln’s legacy. A few of the things visitors will see when visiting the House Where Lincoln Died is the actual pillow President Lincoln laid his head on.
