ABOUT GEORGE WASHINGTON’S ESTATE AND GARDENS-

George Washington, our country’s first president, loved on this plantation. Mt. Vernon was part of  his farms and land of approximately 2000 acres. Today, this home is the most visited historic home in America! Each time you visit, there  will be something new to see, an activity going on, or more items in the museums that were found  in George and Martha Washington’s original estate.

There is a rich history of the slaves and a slave memorial also on the grounds. Living history programs with hands-on activities are available for the children.
