DID YOU KNOW?
In the 18th century, birthdays were not celebrated as they are today. There were no presents or cakes with candles. Sometimes the person's favorite foods might be prepared and a special "cookie" baked. When Washington was president, people attended Birth-night Balls in his honor.
The gift shops at Kenmore and Ferry Farm are closed in January and February, but you can still order items online. The gift shop at Ferry Farm will be open during the Feb. special events.
You can always make a donation online to The George Washington Foundation in honor or memory of someone special. And remember that your gift of $1,000 or more will be matched by The George Washington Legacy Challenge.
