About the Slave Memorial

The Slave Memorial at Mount Vernon was designed by students attending the architectural school at Howard University. It was dedicated and opened to the public on September 21, 1983. 

The memorial is located approximately 50 yards southwest of George and Martha Washington's tomb, on a bluff above the Potomac River.

This sacred ground was used as a cemetery for those enslaved and a few free blacks who worked at Mount Vernon in the 18th and 19th centuries.
