New Education Center and Museum Anchor Enhancements
Ford's Theatre Society today launched a $40 million dollar capital campaign to support a multi-year major renovation and expansion of the 144-year old Ford's Theatre.
Funds raised from the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Campaign will be used to transform the current facilities into a "campus" along Tenth Street NW in downtown Washington, D.C. The campus will feature a renovated theatre with a new lobby, a re-imagined museum, the Petersen House (where President Lincoln died) and a new Center for Education and Leadership focused on the life and legacy of President Lincoln.
