About Clinton, Maryland
Clinton is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) in Prince George’s County, Maryland. Until after the American Civil War, it was known before as Surrattsville. It is known for its role in the American Civil War, specifically regarding the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln.
Clinton, Maryland was founded in the 1770s. It was just a simple crossroads with a decent number of buildings. It was first called Surratt’s Villa, then in the 1800’s, it became Surrattsville. The main building served as the post office, inn, tavern, and voting place. The main residence was owned by Mary Surratt.
On April 14 -15, 1865, two hours after Lincoln’s assassination, the assassin John Wilkes Booth stopped by the Surrattsville tavern to get supplies and weapons. It was alleged that Mary Surratt had gone there before with the supplies and was in collusion with the conspirators, one of whom was her son, John Surratt. Later on, she was found guilty of involvement in Lincoln’s assassination and was hanged at the Capitol Prison on July 7, 1865, in Washington, DC.
Due to the notoriety of the Surratt name, the authorities renamed the town Robeysville. Later in 1879, it was renamed again and became Clinton.
The Vehicles That We Accept for Donation
At Goodwill, we accept virtually all types of vehicles. You can also donate a vehicle regardless of its condition—whether running or not—as long as it still has good enough value.
However, donating a car in running condition is obviously better because we can get more proceeds out of it. This means more funds for our support programs and services that will enable us to help more people. Nevertheless, we will still accept your vehicle even if it’s not in good running condition or not running at all. Our goal here is to make every donation counts.
On a side note, we would like to make it clear that we cannot accept stolen or abandoned vehicles because the one offering them for donation would obviously not be in possession of their titles. If you see abandoned vehicles in your neighborhood, please call your local police.
We also cannot accept vehicles that are so heavily damaged that they have very little or no value at all.
Here is a list of the common types of vehicles we accept in our Clinton, Maryland car donations program:
- General vehicles: cars, SUVs, vans or minivans, trucks, motorcycles
- Recreational vehicles: RVs, campers, travel trailers, motorhomes, toy haulers,
- Boats: fishing boats, sailing boats, pontoon boats, yachts, jet skis
- Specialty vehicles: riding lawn mowers, farm equipment, golf carts, ATVs, buses
- Aircraft: non-commercial planes, helicopters
