Mount Vernon, built in 1757 on the Potomac River, served as the home of George Washington for more than four decades. A portion of the original estate has been preserved for public tours, which includes the mansion and the gravesites of George and Martha Washington. Also on the grounds is the Ford Orientation Center, which shows a film highlighting Washington’s life, and the Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center, which houses several galleries and theaters, as well as a vast collection of artifacts. The Mount Vernon Inn restaurant serves lunch daily and dinner each evening except Sunday.
