Since our founding more than 150 years ago, the Ladies of Mount Vernon have made it their sacred task to preserve George and Martha Washington’s home. Your support will ensure that current and future generations will be able to visit this most historic place.
Washington’s leadership and sterling character were as important to the 18th century as they are today. Your support will help us continue and expand educational programs that help to keep Washington’s legacy vibrant in today’s society.
