Mid-18th century farm house (with alterations after 1800) was home of Col. Samuel Cox. This southern sympathizer fed and sheltered fugitives John Wilkes Booth and David E. Herold before dawn on Easter Sunday, April 16, 1865 following Booth's assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Booth and Herold hid in woods until night of April 21, when Cox's foster brother, Thomas A. Jones, helped them escape across the Potomac to Virginia.
