Admission is free on Feb. 22 for George Washington’s birthday. Admission tickets will be distributed on-site upon arrival.

One question a lot of our guests ask is, "Why isn't George Washington buried at the Capitol?" We set out on a mini journey to the Capitol, the Fairfax County courthouse, and finally Mount Vernon to get the full story.
