George Washington’s Mount Vernon

01 | 05

George Washington’s Mount Vernon is the riverside home of our nation’s first president, George Washington. The estate includes a Mansion, four gardens, and historic outbuildings where enslaved people made tools and textiles, cared for livestock, and processed food. Guests can visit the final resting place of George and Martha Washington, where wreath-laying ceremonies take place year-round.

Mount Vernon is embarking on a multi-year preservation project to safeguard George Washington’s Mansion for generations to come. As work progresses through the house, individual rooms will be taken off display temporarily. Visit for details.
