Welcome Home George Washington with Dean Norton

March 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10.00

“See to it that you keep it the Home of Washington.” Was the charge of Ann Pamela Cunningham the founder of the Mount Vernon Ladies Association upon her retirement in 1874. For over 150 years, people have studied, researched and dug the earth for clues helping make the home of George Washington one of the most accurately restored 18th century estates in America. The beauty, use and importance of Mount Vernon’s gardens and landscape will be discussed as well as preservation over the years. With over 48 years of employment for the Mount Vernon Ladies Association, Norton’s presentation is not a history lesson, but an informative yet entertaining look at the gardening world of George Washington, the Ladies’ Association and personal stories.
