Melissa Kurtz
The most amazing day of my life. My Sweetheart and I found each other again after 40 years, and fell in love all over again. On our fairy tale day, we had lunch at the Inn, then he surprised me with a proposal. I said yes, a million times yes. Thank you to George Washington's Mount Vernon and the staff for the most amazing day of my life. We will be back!! Melissa Kurtz, 2020

Our new favorite tradition is Independence Day fireworks at Mt. Vernon. This is my son, William, with one of the interpreters. We have thoroughly enjoyed the past 2 years and hope very much to do it again this summer if possible. Denise Hannesschlager, 2019

This was from the amazing Camp Washington in 2018. Catherine and Elizabeth Young are pictured with a costumed musician who led the marching with flags on the lawn. This was one of their many favorite memories of Camp Washington. Suzanne Young, 2018

My daughters, Katie (on left) and Kylie (on right) LOVED our visit to Mount Vernon in July 2019. They especially enjoyed the chance to speak to Martha Washington. We love American history in our family, and we spent an entire day exploring Mount Vernon. We still talk about our visit often and hope to visit again someday. We learned so much!

Patty Greene,
In October, 2016, I had the honor of accompanying a group of Vietnam-era Navy veterans, the VAPPERS, on a trip to Mount Vernon. They hailed from all parts of the country and the trip to Mount Vernon was part of their annual reunion. My father, pictured in the photo frame, who was a member of the VAPPERS, passed away in 2014, and I was invited to join their group in his memory. Everyone enjoyed the history associated with Mount Vernon, as well as the awesome views. Patty Greene, 2016

Our 10 year old son, Christopher, was sent a Flat Stanley from his friend in Rhode Island. He was asked to bring Flat Stanley to a famous, historic site in Virginia and have his picture taken. “We HAVE to take him to George Washington’s home!” It is always wonderful to visit Mount Vernon, but this was an extra special trip to share its history with a friend. Emily Swain, 2020

My wife Jacque and I visited Mt. Vernon at the end of October, 2019. We were in the Washington, D. C. area to dedicate a memorial to my wife's Irish immigrants whose graves at Mt. Olivette were heretofore unmarked (they immigrated during the famine). We had not been to Mt. Vernon in several years and this time we wanted to spend three days so we could absorb as much information as possible about Washington's life. One aspect that stood out for us was the range of endeavors Washington undertook to broaden his economic base. The grist mill is a fabulous example. The tour was very interesting and the grounds are lovely, especially in the fall. While the mansion and its grounds are, of course, the centerpiece of a trip to Mt. Vernon, the grist mill shouldn't be overlooked. It was cutting edge for its time and a demonstration of the breadth of Washington's thinking. Mt. Vernon is such a precious part of our heritage and we're grateful that it is being so well maintained and curated. Thanks to all who contribute to make this possible and to the staff and volunteers for their outstanding work. Since we live so far away, we very much appreciate the wonderful online resources that are available. October 2019. Marc Christensen, 2019

A visit to Virginia wouldn’t be complete without a trip to MV! This was during a trip to celebrate my father-in-law’s 80th in November of 2018! Clan Brennan Katherin Brennan, 2018

This is my son, Jonathon. He loves animals and made a special connection with the sheep in the photo, naming him Henry! He posed with him here. We always look for Henry now when we see updates from Mount Vernon and hope he is well! When we return there, we look for him and say hello! Val Crofts, 2017
