Presidents Day 2024

Although today is now officially Presidents Day, it was chosen because it is the birthday of our first President, George Washington.

Have you ever visited Mount Vernon, the beloved home of George Washington? I’ve been lucky enough to visit it several times and it’s beautiful.

Even before the Civil War, Mount Vernon was in a serious state of disrepair, but the Mount Vernon Ladies Association raised $200,000 to begin renovations and has cared for the estate ever since.

If you live too far away to visit in person, take the virtual tour and learn all about this magnificent estate. In addition to the mansion, visit the historic education area, the farm, the distillery and grill and the tombs of George and Martha Washington. It’s a very moving experience standing just feet away from their remains.

Today, Presidents Day seems to be little more than a three day weekend from work and school, but it’s a great time to learn about colonial life in America and the life of our first President, George Washington.
