Was ihr unternehmen werdet

This is your opportunity to see Mount Vernon like a local. Even local residents are unaware of the rich history we have here in Mount Vernon, outside of the famous estate of George Washington. Our first stop will be at the Gum Springs Museum with GSM President Ron Chase to learn about one of the first communities of freedmen founded by West Ford, a freed slave and former foreman to the house servants at Mount Vernon. Depending on availability, we will also visit one of Good Shepherd Housing's affordable apartments and hear how our mission has evolved with our changing community. On our way to the Woodlawn Mansion, you’ll spy the Woodlawn Quaker Meetinghouse, home to abolitionists who supported the economic independence of free African-Americans in Woodlawn and Gum Springs. Our next stop will include special tour of the Woodlawn Mansion, which was part of the original Mount Vernon estate. We will conclude our day with a tour and wine tasting at one of Fairfax County's newest wineries, Woodlawn Press Winery.

I'm the Director of Development at Good Shepherd Housing. I'm also a small business owner, who has lived in the Mount Vernon area for almost twenty years. I ran for county supervisor a few years ago, and had the good fortune to learn even more about the history of our community as part of that experience, and I love sharing that history with others. Mount Vernon is so much more than the estate of George Washington! Mount Vernon is the home of the Gum Springs Community, Gunston Hall, the Woodlawn Quaker Meeting House, Fort Belvoir, and the Workhouse, to just name a few.
