Mount Vernon

Hogar de George Washington y lugar donde lo sepultaron.

Se ubica en el norte del estado de Virginia en EE.UU., junto al río Potomac, cerca de Washington, D.C. Washington heredó esta finca en 1751. Cerca de la mansión de estilo georgiano del s. XVIII se encuentra una sencilla tumba de ladrillos construida conforme a las instrucciones de Washington, en la cual descansan los restos de él y de su esposa. Después de que el gobierno estadounidense rehusara comprarla, en 1858 la Mount Vernon Ladies' Association of the Union (Asociación de mujeres de la unión de Mount Vernon) reunió US$200.000 y adquirió la residenciajunto con las 81 ha (200 acres) de la finca; la asociación aún mantiene el lugar.
