Mary Washington House Tours

Mary Washington House
The historic home of George Washington’s mother gives visitors insight into the life and final 17 years of Mary Washington. Period-clad docents welcome you to the 18th-century Mary Washington House and invite you to take a mental step back in time as you explore the original kitchen, guest room where George Washington slept, and gardens.

The Basics
Visitors to Mary Washington House can explore the house and gardens while learning about the home from docents along the way. The house is one of four Washington Heritage Museum sites located in downtown Fredericksburg, and you can pair a tour of this site with a visit to the Rising Sun Tavern and Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop.
