Mount Vernon is an incomparable national treasure. Situated on the banks of the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia, this 500-acre estate offers a glimpse into 18th-century plantation life through beautiful gardens and grounds, intriguing museum exhibitions, and immersive programs honoring the life and legacy of George Washington—first American president, commander of the Continental Army, president of the Constitutional Convention, and gentleman planter.
Please join us on this specially led tour of George Washington’s Mount Vernon with Jamie Bosket, VHS President and CEO.

Reynolds Museum and Education Center, a ceremony and wreath laying at Washington’s Tomb, the final resting place of George and Martha Washington, lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn, followed by a stop at the fully functioning reconstructions of George Washington’s Distillery and Gristmill.
Mount Vernon was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960. Today it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the most visited historic homes in America.
