Monday, March 1 at 4pm ET: Members-Only Livestream

Every other week, we'll be hosting a special livestream just for our Mount Vernon members. On Monday, March 1, members can tune into this special behind-the-scenes livestream for a look at our recently acquired Peter's Collection of historic Washington objects with Mount Vernon's curator of fine & decorative arts, Adam Erby.

In Fall 2020, the Association received the extraordinary opportunity to purchase more than 100 Washington-owned objects that remained in family hands—the single largest collection to return in modern times. The collection includes highly personal objects that rarely survive, such as Martha Washington’s stunning gold pocket watch, presidential porcelain for the dinner table, delicate glassware, and more.
