Neighborhood Friends receive all the benefits of regular membership as well as access to special ticketed and free events including the Birthnight Supper & Ball and an annual picnic only open to the special members living on the original Five Farms.

Membership proceeds go toward the Neighborhood Friends 2019 annual project that supports the West Front Exterior Mansion Restoration. To keep the Mansion’s siding—much of which is original to Washington’s time—weather tight, 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.
