Normally open 365 days a year, George Washington’s Mount Vernon closed due to the pandemic, but, as of June 25, 2020, has re-opened!
While the Mansion Interior is currently closed to visitors, guests can still explore the beautiful grounds and gardens, see a historic trades demonstration, visit the pioneer farm, hike the forest trail, or say hello to their heritage breed animals!
Mount Vernon is the former plantation estate and burial location of George Washington, an American political leader, military general, statesman, and Founding Father who served as the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797.
In addition to a 1735 mansion and the tomb of George and Martha Washington, the property includes a memorial dedicated to the enslaved people who lived and worked on the estate. Mount Vernon also has many interpretive spaces, such as the Pioneer Farm and Washington’s Gristmill & Distillery — all to better understand our first President’s ambitious and profitable business ventures.
Enjoy guided and self-guided tours, seasonal and special events, and more; visit Mount Vernon online today to plan your visit.
George Washington’s Mount Vernon is located at 3200 Mount Vernon Memorial Hwy., Mount Vernon, VA 22121.
