About the Old Tomb

On December 18, 1799, four days after his death, George Washington’s body was placed in the Old Tomb where other family members were entombed, including his older half-brother Lawrence and Martha Washington’s daughter Martha (Patsy) Parke Custis. They remained here until 1831 when they were moved to the New Tomb nearby. The New Tomb was constructed based on Washington's specifications.
