Please join us for this exclusive calendar of events inspired by Mount Vernon’s mission. Sign up and purchase a limited spot in order to participate in these exclusive events. These opportunities are available to all.

Net proceeds from these events go toward the rustication and restoration of the west front of the Mansion exterior. To keep the Mansion's siding - much of which is original to Washington's time - weathertight, and to ensure that it protects the building for years to come, it is imperative that we strip off the paint, make repairs, and then apply a fresh coat of paint and sand.
