Musées d'histoire

Historic Site
“ No history buff’s trip to D.C. is complete without a visit to George Washington’s Mount Vernon. Home to our first president and his wife Martha, this expansive eighteenth-century estate is remarkable preserved. On what is still an impressive amount of land, you’ll find their stylishly appointed home, lovely gardens and grounds, and several historic outbuildings like a distillery and gristmill. It’s all been carefully preserved, and in some cases extensively restored, and it remains a fascinating look into the way wealthy Americans lived in the period. While this attraction is comprised of a few distinct buildings and does require some outside time, you’ll be able to spend the bulk of your experience in these lovely historic venues to avoid the rain.”

“Gunston Hall Plantation was the home of George Mason, a senior statesman and author of Virginia's Declaration of Rights. I toured Gunston Hall on a beautiful fall day and had a wonderful time. I was the only person there for an afternoon tour, so I got a private tour. The guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions. In addition to the main house (much of which was original), there were many outbuildings on the grounds which were fun to explore.”

“It is small but packed with information. Displayed everyday items from the area and era. Docent was welcoming and helpful. Quite a collection of stuff about the town of Occoquan, and some real oddities. Take you about 5 - 15 minutes, so you can combine this visit with the newly opened park next door or with some shopping.”
