George Washington's Mt Vernon estate is owned, maintained and operated by the Mt Vernon Lady's Association. It is all privately funded. I buy an annual membership, that gets the two of us in whenever we want to go. Only a few times in the past year, but more often under normal circumstances. I can easily find places where George Washington slept.

Travel Tuesday - George Washington
When I was growing up there was a running joke about historic places all saying "George Washington Slept Here." Living 8 miles from what was his home, it is easy to find places he touched, slept or worked. He was one of the surveyors for the hilltop we lived on, he was part of the survey crew that platted the City of Alexandria, just down the hill from where I live. The Fairfax family had a house on this hill, about 300 feet from my terrace, George Washington's diaries show he had dinner with them there, about a week before he died.
