George Washington's Entrepreneurial Grit

773 views

George Washington's ever-fascinating gristmill and distillery help visitors at Mount Vernon understand the first president's entrepreneurial spirit. The two structures are in use three miles down the road from the estate, but they close at the end of October each year, so catch them while you can.

Filmed and produced by Becca Milfeld. Music by David and Ginger Hildebrand.
