Is the General In?

Records show that the Washington's were frequent and gracious hosts.  Some year's they had hundreds of overnight guests.  Some were invited, some were planned and others simply showed up.  Hosting guests and travelers was a social obligation, seldom overlooked.

The ground floor and part of the second floor of Mt Vernon are open for tours everyday.  A few select days of the year, additional parts of the second and third floor are open to the public.  It is a rare glimpse into life in Colonial America.

Neat place, really neat.
