Your Destination
Mount Vernon, VA
When George Washington lived here, Mount Vernon was virtually a self-contained community. Nothing was purchased that could be produced on site. Yet the Mansion House Farm was so well designed that the service lanes did not intrude upon the area reserved for the enjoyment of Washington, his family, and their many guests. Over the past 150 years, George Washington's architectural achievements at Mount Vernon have been painstakingly preserved and restored.
