A great stop in the area for the culture and to add to the vast history of George Washington. Several time period pieces help make the experience more immersive.

George Wahington built the original house in Fredericksburg for his mother and she lived in it from 1772 until her death in 1789. Docents were in period dress and were both knowledgeable and interesting and helped us understand the social psychology of 18th century America.
