Built by George Washington's sister, Betty Washington Lewis, and her husband, Fielding Lewis, this Georgian-style, brick mansion reflects the pre-Revolutionary-War wealth and status of the Fredericksburg merchant. A visit to Kenmore starts in the Crowninshield Museum building (just to the left of the front gate). A new introductory exhibit, The Patriots Lewis: What Would You Give, with accompanying hands-on activities for children, tells this powerful narrative through key pieces from the Foundation's collection of 18th-century furniture and decorative arts. A comprehensive refurnishing of the mansion is ongoing, and period furniture and interior details increasingly offer a descriptive setting for this historic story. The 45-minute tour includes the first floor of the house and kitchen dependency. Gardens and grounds may be enjoyed by visitors at their leisure. Visit kenmore.org for a list of special events and programs.
