Mount Vernon, George Washington's 8,000-acre plantation on the banks of the Potomac River, is the most popular historic estate in America.  Located 16 miles south of Washington, D.C., it has seen nearly 80 million visitors since it was opened to the public in 1860.  The independently-run estate offers several opportunities for insight into life as it would have been for Washington, his family, and his staff.  The "George Washington:  Pioneer Farmer" exhibit, especially popular with children, is a 4-acre farm demonstrating how Washington would have run his plantation.  The Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center and the Ford Orientation Center offer theaters and galleries detailing Washington's life.
