Preserving Mount Vernon Tour

Join us for an insider’s look at the remarkable efforts required to care for Mount Vernon, one of the best documented and most complete examples of an estate from early America!  In the 1850s, the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association began preserving the home of George and Martha Washington, and more than 160 years later, the work continues. This unique tour provides extraordinary access to the processes and practices of our preservation staff. Participants go behind the scenes with a member of our professional team to learn about the latest preservation projects at Mount Vernon.
