Mount Vernon is an American landmark and an enduring tribute to our nation's first President. Originally a simpler house built by his father in 1735, President Washington acquired Mount Vernon in 1754, and over the next 45 years slowly enlarged the home to create the magnificent 21-room residence we see today. George Washington personally supervised each renovation and advised on design, construction, decoration, and landscaping—even during the Revolutionary War.
