George Washington’s Mount Vernon

01 | 03

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 temporarily taken off display. Visit for details.

From July 2024 through 2025, the Education Center exhibit on George Washington’s life will be off display for an extensive rebuild. Visit for details.
