Birth and Rebirth

Established to honor the 200th birthday of the first president of the United States, the Birthplace represents more than a century of local, state, and national efforts to memorialize Washington. The essence of George Washington's story at the site, however, does not reside in wood and brick, rather it is in the land and people of Virginia's Tidewater, which forever shaped Washington's life.
