Faulkner is an unincorporated community in Charles County, Maryland, United States.[1] It is home to the Loyola Roman Catholic retreat center.[2] Near here, John Wilkes Booth, assisted by Thomas A. Jones of Huckleberry Farm, was rowed across the Potomac River into Virginia, a week after he assassinated President Abraham Lincoln. The community was called Lothair before being renamed for a local resident.

Landmarks include Mount Air, a Federal style house which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and Timber Neck Farm added in 1979.[3]
