Event Showing On

In the summer of 1787, while attending the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, George Washington commissioned Joseph Rakestraw to construct a weathervane for his Mansion, which featured a dove of peace holding an olive branch—symbolizing Washington’s hope that peace would prevail long into the future. May your dove ornament be a reminder of your own hopes for peace, love, and joy this holiday season and in the New Year!

This event occurs in the Education Center lobby while supplies last.
