Mount Vernon's historic outbuildings house the many important trades that sustained the bustling plantation.

In the latter half of the eighteenth century, Mount Vernon was the home, farm, and thriving business of one of America’s most prominent citizens. The essential operations of the plantation were performed in numerous buildings scattered throughout the estate. Washington built these vital workspaces during the 1760s-1790s, in his ongoing pursuit of economic independence and financial success.
