The theater where the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, was killed. This happened in 1865, when Lincoln was in his VIP box to watch the play. A native of the slaveholding South of the USA and a fanatic of the old order D.W. Booth secretly entered the box and shot the president. Now the theater functions as a museum. The building is included in the register of national historical places of the USA.
