Mount Vernon invites visitors to explore George Washington’s design for the grounds of his estate, highlighting the first president’s interests and talents as a landscape designer through the exciting new exhibition, Garden & Groves: George Washington’s Landscape at Mount Vernon. On view in The Donald W. Reynolds Museum & Education Center’s F.M. Kirby Foundation Gallery, Gardens & Groves showcases more than 40 objects combining rarely-seen items from Mount Vernon’s collection with original Washington books and letter loaned from institutions across the country.  The centerpiece of Gardens & Groves is a spectacular 8’x 9’x 11’ model of Mount Vernon’s landscape as Washington last saw it in 1799. Gardens & Groves will be on view through January 2016.



Admission Fee: Exhibit included in general admission.
