Below is the same view from May of 2016.

Present day

Well, the boot scraper has gone (probably risk-assessed as a trip hazard, although there's not much mud in DC these days) and the sign has been replaced. Otherwise it's not very different.

Museum at Ford's

For those not living in D.C. - This is the Peterson House. It is still open for tours and managed by the National Park Service. Adjacent Ford's Theater in undergoing renovations until spring 2009. The museum's collection is not available for viewing by the public. Pictures are available at http://www.fordstheatre.org/about-us/museum.aspx

Admission

Thirty cents to get in? Let's go watch "Zorro" instead.

Have a Nice Trip
