Mt Vernon Active Displays
I enjoy active historical displays, in other words people demonstrating work in history displays. In the past Mt Vernon has done little of this, the Blacksmith shop has been open for a just a few years, and there is usually a cooking demonstration at the lower farm.
This year the spinning and weaving shop has been brought to life. Up until now it was an entirely static display, I think it really comes to life when work is being done.
Wow! None of this was in action when I was there (from the '60s through the '80s). Would love to see it now.ReplyDelete

Ever been to National Colonial Farm?ReplyDelete
Looks like it might be possible to kayak to Mount Vernon from there (but I don't know if landing at Mt. Vernon is allowed?)
Like Mitchell, I haven't been to these places in years! (the traffic puts me off.)
I need to go there, I have been to Ft Washington once.Delete
