Description

lmages of America: Mount Vernon takes a visual excursion through the history of the home and neighborhood of our first president of the United States, George Washington. Washington's ancestors came to Northern Virginia over 320 years ago, and by 1786, he had acquired an 8,000-plus-acre tract of land surrounding Mount Vernon. Washington divided this acreage into five farms, which were considered his pride and joy. His detailed management of agricultural affairs, as well as his flair for entertaining, left a visual impression on all that visited. The region, from the late 17th century to Washington's death in 1799, continued to thrive. The estate has withstood and prospered during the selling of Mount Vernon and the surrounding properties, the establishment of the Quaker community in the 1840s, the Civil War, the arrival of the Army Corps of Engineers in 1915, and over 200 years of tourism. Through this volume, containing over 200 images of Mount Vernon and the surrounding vicinity, readers will experience the area's rich history.
