George Slept Here


Recommended Posts

I see that the George Washington Foundation plans to start work on the George Washington Trail in three to four years. It will connect Mt. Vernon, his birthplace at Pope's Creek and his boyhood home at Ferry Farm where he may or may not have chopped down the cherry tree and skipped the silver dollar across the river.


Ferry Farm has just recently undergone its first major archaeological dig with lots of artifacts found. The house iself was burned for firewood by Union soldiers during the Civil War.


Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
