With the advent of the automobile and the creation of the George Washington Parkway in the early 1930s visitation increased dramatically. By 1952 more than a million people a year visited the estate. Today, Mount Vernon remains one of the most visited places in the world. Presidents entertain here, kings and queens tour the plantation, and people from all over the world stop by to marvel at Washington’s home and grounds. Many who visit take photographs to document their journey. We have assembled some of our favorite photos of visitors to the estate on this page.
When was your first trip to Mount Vernon? Did you come with a school group, on a family vacation, or are you planning to visit sometime soon? We hope you enjoy looking at the pictures and please send us your photo and tell us a little about your visit to Mount Vernon and we'll post them on this website. Photographs and memories can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
