About the Historic Area

In 1799, more than 50 enslaved men and women were trained in specific trades. These individuals used their skills to make tools and textiles, care for livestock, process food, and construct and repair many of Mount Vernon’s buildings, including the Mansion itself. Today visitors can explore the outbuildings where much of this work was done including the blacksmith shopsmokehousestablespinning house, and more.
