Revitalize the Mansion

We are now embarking on a major Mansion Revitalization effort which will strengthen the Mansion's foundation, preserve original architecture, open new areas of interpretation, and create documentation that will mark this as one of the biggest restoration efforts in Mount Vernon's history. 



Phase 1 – Planned Completion August 2023

We’ve kicked off the first phase of this Revitalization Project with the expansion of the underground utility bunker. This critical expansion will:

  • Provide additional access to the historic cellar which will allow for greater interpretation into this hidden hub of Mansion operations.

  • Control the humidity and temperature with room by room zoning - which will preserve the architectural fabric as well as priceless objects on display.

  • Preserve the historic fabric of the Mansion by upgrading obsolete HVAC systems.

This is just the beginning of our preservation journey together. Please give generously so we can Revitalize the Mansion so it is ready to welcome millions of visitors in celebration of America's 250th birthday in 2026.
