In the 1850s, the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association began preserving the home of George and Martha Washington, and the work continues more than 160 years later. In recent years many rooms inside the Mansion have undergone extensive restoration work, often in view of the public. This 60-minute tour gives participants extraordinary access to the processes and practices of our preservation staff, including climbing on scaffolding and visiting the basement, second floor of the servants hall, and recently completed rooms.

This tour is for visitors 12 and older. Please allow 10-15 minutes to walk from the Ford Orientation Center to the Mansion Circle to meet your guide.
