George Washington’s Mount Vernon
About George Washington’s Mount Vernon
This historic site offers a glimpse into 18th-century plantation life and exhibits honoring George Washington’s life and legacy. The site is almost all wheelchair accessible, with the exception of the first floor the Mansion. Guest who are blind or have low vision or who are deaf or hard of hearing can use a small, handheld device to guide themselves around the site. Through the use of GPS hotspots and infrared emitters located around the estate, these devices automatically provide audio description services, assistive listening or text captioning.
