Mount Vernon

This graceful mansion, on the banks of the Potomac River, is the second most visited historic residence in America after the White House. George Washington inherited the estate aged 22, and lived at Mount Vernon for over 40 years. With many of the buildings and activities brought back to life, no other place better portrays the character of the first US president, or the role of slavery-based agriculture in the young republic. Be sure to visit the Ford Orientation Center and the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center for exhibitions and artifacts.prac_info3200 Mount Vernon Parkway • 703 780 • Open Apr–Aug: ...
