Mount Vernon

Mount Vernon is being nominated to the WHL simply as a means of recognizing the international significance of the home of George Washington. The preservation of Mount Vernon has been scrupulously overseen by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, the private foundation that purchased the site from the Washington family in 1858, and which has operated the property since 1860 as a public trust for the people of the world. The site is not under any threat, and the Ladies’ Association does not seek any financial support from any government for its upkeep.
