George Washignton's 281st Weekend Birthday Celebration

George Washington’s favorite breakfast was “hoecakes swimming in butter and honey.” Join “General Washington” for a sample of this meal (while supplies last) from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Visitors are encouraged to leave a note with their thoughts about Washington. A select number of notes from our visitors will be read aloud to “General Washington” during a festive ceremony. A special wreathlaying will take place at 3 p.m. This event is included in regular Estate admission: adults, $17; children ages 6-11, $8; and children under 5 are admitted free.
