Letter from Mary Higgins Clark


Letter from President Curt Viebranz

In January 2017, we marked the 258th anniversary of George and Martha Washington's wedding. Their forty-year marriage, through the war, tumult, and peace, was a source of great strength and joy throughout their lives.  Even in death they lie side by side at Mount Vernon.

Bestselling author and friend of Mount Vernon Mary Higgins Clark has allowed us to reprint her Mount Vernon Love Story, a wonderful account of the Washingtons' lives together.  We would be honored to send you an autographed copy of this book for any gift of $29 or higher.  If you make a gift of $49 or higher we will send you two autographed copies!

Your tax-deductible gift will not only allow us to preserve George and Martha's home, but your donation will also give us the opportunity to share the Washington legacy with a new generation that so needs to learn of the impressive legacy and character of George Washington.

Mount Vernon is a recipient of the 
Four-Star Charity Navigator Award
