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

Dear friends and guests,

The George Washington Foundation is pleased to announce the reopening of its sites. Historic Kenmore will reopen for guided tours on Tuesday, July 7. George Washington’s Ferry Farm will reopen for guided tours of the Washington house on Friday, July 10. The grounds at Ferry Farm will also be open to those with tour tickets, and feature new pathways, which were recently created to make the property more accessible.

A cleaning schedule has been established above and beyond the daily cleaning methods. This will assure that all surfaces encountered by the public are wiped down thoroughly several times a day. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer will be available at both sites. No one with a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19 is permitted on-site.

Guests are asked to refrain from touching or contacting objects, furnishings and fabrics in the Washington house, which are normally hands-on. Tours will be limited in size to ensure proper social distancing. Masks are required while inside both Kenmore and the Washington house.

We strongly suggest that you purchase tickets in advance of your visit to ensure availability, as tour size will be limited. Go to the Kenmore and Ferry Farm pages to purchase tickets online.

We look forward to safely welcoming visitors back to Historic Kenmore and Ferry Farm.
