More than 85 million people have visited George Washington’s Mount Vernon since it officially opened to the public in 1860. In addition to the tomb of George and Martha Washington, the property includes a memorial dedicated to the enslaved people who lived and worked on the estate, as well as interpretive spaces, such as the Pioneer Farm and George Washington’s Gristmill & Distillery. All this is to better understand Washington’s ambitious and profitable business ventures.
