When guests walk around George Washington's Mount Vernon Estate, they will notice that the rooms and buildings are not only in pristine condition but still look as if they are in the 18th century. This is due to the hard work of our preservation department, who are constantly researching and restoring the historic parts of the estate to keep them as they were in 1799. In this latest vlog, we meet with Caroline Spurry as she walks us through the long, detailed but ultimately rewarding process of restoring the Blue Room in George Washington's Mansion.
