Restoration Projects

The Historic Preservation & Collections team continually undertakes research and analysis in order to refine our understanding of Mount Vernon’s buildings and landscapes. Work is guided by exciting new findings about the architecture and furnishings.

With your support, we can return each room in the Mansion to its 1799 appearance and preserve the home of George and Martha Washington.

The Blue Room

The Blue Room’s history connects it to three significant moments in the Washingtons’ lives: when George Washington first became the gentleman landowner of Mount Vernon; when Martha Washington became mistress of the house; and years later, when Washington’s status as gentleman, military hero, and national leader was fully established.
