General Washington greets visitors and poses for photographs on Father’s Day weekend.  Listen as Washington discusses his role as husband, stepfather, and Father of Our Country in the program “Father to the First Family.” This program is offered at 11AM, 1PM, and 3PM.

At George Washington's Distillery & Gristmill, demonstrations by costumed distillers take visitors through the historic process of whiskey-making in this reconstructed 18th-century distillery. Visitors see costumed distillers operating copper stills, stirring mash tubs, and managing the boiler as they demonstrate 18th-century distilling. A 16-foot waterwheel powers the giant gears and millstones of Washington's remarkable Gristmill that includes the only operating Oliver Evans Automated Milling System in America.

Father's Day Weekend takes place rain or shine.
