    George Washington was Americas first and greatest hero whose leadership was crucial to the establishment of the United States as an independent nation founded on the principles of personal liberty.George Washington Birthplace National Monument preserves the heart of the Washington's plantation and the Washington Family Burial Ground. A Memorial House and dependencies were constructed in 1931 near the location of the original Washington home. Here, in the peace and beauty of this place untouched by time, the staunch character of our hero comes to the imagination.
