George Washington wrote of his beloved Mount Vernon, “No estate is more pleasantly situated than this.” Today you will enjoy the same breathtaking view across the Potomac River that enamored Washington all those years ago.
The buildings and beautiful grounds, part of one of the nation’s oldest historic preservation projects, are as meticulously preserved as they were in 1799. These historic grounds reveal Washington’s skill as one of the foremost agriculturists of his day, his discerning taste in his home and its furnishings, and his love of the outdoors.
On this special tour you can pay your respects at the tomb of George and Martha Washington, and see the innovative Pioneer Farmer site, a working 4-acre farm and recreation of Washington’s 16 treading sided barn. You’ll enjoy the inspirational Slave Memorial, interesting outbuildings of the mansion, the lush gardens and panoramic views.
See why Mount Vernon is one of the most visited National Landmark in the country on this wonderful tour.
