Ford's Theatre is the name of the theatre where Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14, 1865 by John Wilkes Booth. The building was originally a Baptist church, but in 1861 John T. Ford turned it into a theatre. After Lincoln's assassination, the theatre was closed for over one hundred years until it finally reopened in 1968. It is located at 511 10th Street, NW in Washington, D.C.
It is listed as a National Historic Site.
