Let Freedom Ring!


Historic Mount Vernon, the home of our first commander-in-chief who led American troops to victory in the country’s fight for independence, will celebrate George Washington’s contribution to America’s freedom on July 4th with its annual event An American Celebration.  The day will feature military reenactments, a musical performance by the National Concert Bandof America, a special wreathlaying ceremony, free birthday cake for all (while supplies last), and a visit from the “first” first couple, “General and Mrs. Washington.” Independence Day weekend is the last opportunity to see a full-sized replica of the original Liberty Bell on display and rung every hour at Mount Vernon!  All events are included in regular Estate admission: adults, $13.00; children ages 6-11, $6.00; and children under 5 are admitted free.
