The K.B.W. Challenge: Maintaining the Historic Gardens

2:03 Published December 3, 2015

Vice Regent of Arkansas, Cathy Mayton and Carol Cadou, Senior Vice President, Historic Preservation & Collections, presents the K.B.W. Preservation Challenge. The K.B.W. Preservation Challenge is made possible by Karen Buchwald Wright, of Mount Vernon, Ohio. It is a tremendous opportunity for our cause, because it will directly match $2 for every $1 that you are able to give. Maintaining each building, along with the grounds that were carefully designed by George Washington himself, is a monumental task that requires enormous funding and never-ending effort. Our preservationists work endlessly to offset and correct the damaging effects of the elements and time. Your donation will help us continue our mission to preserve Washington's estate for generations to come.This video is about Untitled Project
