Horticultural Tour of Mount Vernon, George Washington’s Home   Join us for a special visit to Mount Vernon, George Washington’s home on the Potomac River.

Upon arrival, we will be joined by Dean Norton, Director of Horticulture, for a private tour of the historic gardens. We also have a unique opportunity to tour the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington, a center for research and scholarship on Washington and the founding era of the United States. The Library’s collection of rare books, documents and maps relating to Washington, his family, and life at Mount Vernon includes items that illustrate Washington’s strong connection to the Potomac for transportation, commerce and fishery.
