Mary Washington House

Hi Prim girls,
During this spring break, I take time with my family to see some historical places here in Fredericksburg, VA. One of them was the house of Mary Ball Washington, mother of our first President George Washington. He purchase this home in 1772  for his mother, and she spent her last 17 yrs in this home. The President-to-be came to this home to receive his mother's blessing before attending his inauguration in 1789.
It is a beautiful place and some of her possesions are on view in this house, including a mirror that she called her "best dressing glass".  No pictures are permitted inside the house but you can take awesome pictures from the gardens and outside kitchen. See below..

Bye, bye and see you soon.
