Beyond his accomplishments as first president, his military performance, and an active family life lies George Washington’s historic role as an entrepreneur. The Potomac River afforded him a profitable fishery operation while his gristmill produced ground flour and cornmeal. The whiskey producing distillery also yielded revenue and was the largest distillery in America.
Just as General Washington was a hands-on entrepreneur, our Caroler features a lifelike rendition in authentic costume, a bag of cornmeal from the gristmill he built, a barrel from his unrivaled distillery, and fish caught from the Potomac.
This 2nd Edition George Washington Caroler, dressed in brown britches, muslin shirt, and dark burgundy jacket with brass buttons, is approximately 13” tall. The Byers’ Choice Caroler, handcrafted in Pennsylvania, is available exclusively at Mount Vernon.
