George Washington: Innovation and Entrepreneurship

As a surveyor, farmer, and investor George Washington constantly looked for opportunities to harness and manage natural resources and agricultural production for his own economic interest, as well as for the nation and communities he built. Explore Washington's business acumen with experts from George Washington's Mount Vernon and learn how inventions can be used as primary sources.
