George Washington’s Mount Vernon has a new exhibit at the Donald W. Reynolds Museum entitled ‘Becoming Mount Vernon’ that takes a broad look at how Mount Vernon came to be, from Native Americans through Washington’s ownership and into preservation efforts.

New specialty tours include the Founding Flowers garden tour and Hamilton: The Musical tour. George Mason’s Gunston Hall is restoring its river-side garden, which will enhance the authenticity of the historic property and reveal much about the Founding Father.

For the first time since Dulles Airport DC opened in 1962, travellers will have a fast, easy, inexpensive rapid transit option for getting from Dulles to parts of Fairfax County and other points throughout Northern Virginia and Washington, DC when the Silver Line Metrorail extension opens - sometime this year.
