About the Storehouse

This building provided storage under lock and key for hundreds of items, such as tools and nails used by carpenters, leather and thread for the cobbler, powder and shot for the huntsmen, and blankets and clothes used by enslaved persons. George Washington and his farm managers kept a watchful eye on the storehouse, which was within sight of the Mansion. Items were inventoried as they were purchased and then carefully issued as needed.
