Mt. Vernon

Inside the house, we were able to see the room where George Washington was told he was elected president and the room where he died. We also saw many original pieces of furniture, even the chair and desk he brought back to the house after he was no longer president. It was an amazing house, but the property is unbelievable! What a piece of real estate!

George and Martha's graves. On the wall above it quotes John 11:25-26, which says:
I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.
