Profile

Since its reopening in 1968, more than one hundred years after the April 14, 1865, assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, Ford's Theatre has been one of the most visited sites in the nation's capital. Operated through a partnership between Ford's Theatre Society and the National Park Service, Ford's Theatre has enthralled visitors because of its unique place in U.S. history. The mission of Ford's Theatre Society is to celebrate the legacy of Abraham Lincoln and to explore the American experience through theatre and education. For its accomplishments, Ford's Theatre Society was honored in 2008 with the National Medal of Arts, the highest award given by the U.S. government to artists, arts institutions and arts patrons. We work to present the nearly one million annual visitors with a high quality historical and cultural experience, enhancing the vibrancy of the historic site as an important tool for promoting the ideals of leadership, humanity and wisdom espoused by Abraham Lincoln. Within the near future, Ford's Theatre will be recognized as a major center for learning, where people of all ages can examine the events of that fateful evening in 1865 and experience the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln.
