At Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm, families and student groups have the opportunity to understand the people, events, and ideas that shaped the American spirit. By walking in the footsteps of George Washington, Mary Washington, Fielding and Betty Washington Lewis, and their families as well as the Native Americans, enslaved communities, Civil War soldiers, and more, we can better understand the people who called these landmarks home.
