An Announcement from Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm

Dear friends and guests,

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation at the national, state, and local levels continues to evolve, The George Washington Foundation has closed Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm to visitors until further notice.

We will re-assess based on recommendations from federal, state, and local governments and medical authorities. We are monitoring and evaluating the COVID-19 developments, and are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those recommendations will inform the Foundation’s decision as to when it will re-open to the public.

We will keep you updated through our website, Facebook page, and Lives & Legacies blog, along with providing plenty of interesting stories for you to follow about the Washington and Lewis families. Stay tuned on these channels for updates as to when our sites will reopen.

The leadership and staff of The George Washington Foundation appreciate your understanding as we navigate this difficult situation. To the friends of Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm—stay safe and healthy. Thank you for your continued support.

After careful consideration, The George Washington Foundation and Washington Heritage Museums have decided to cancel History Camp in Historic Fredericksburg, which was scheduled for June 8-12, 2020. With the current COVID-19 situation, we feel that it is in the best interest of the public for us to cancel the camp. We look forward to the day that we can welcome visitors back to our sites safely again!
