Ford's Theatre reintroduces walking tours

Summer is quickly approaching and the surest sign is Ford's Theatre is reintroducing walking tours in March.

The walking tours take patrons through Ford's Theatre, and then on a 1.5 mile tour throughout downtown.

There are two tours.  In one, you follow a detective around town as you learn about the investigation surrounding the Lincoln assassination.  That tour is two hours with eight stops.

The second tour is given by a character named Elizabeth Keckly, who bought her freedom and was friends with the Lincolns.   This tour is 90 minutes.

For more information on when these tours occur and to get tickets, visit this site.
