St. Catherine on the Zechia is the home and plantation of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, who set the leg of John Wilkes Booth, assassin of President Lincoln, while Booth was fleeing Washington. For this deed, Dr. Mudd was sent to Fort Jefferson Prison (Dry Tortugas Island, Florida) for life, but he was pardoned in 1869 by President Andrew Johnson. The museum houses a large number of items belonging to the Mudd Family.
