Upon the death of Anne Fairfax in , he succeeded to the remainder interest and became sole owner of the property. In , Washington began the first of two major additions and improvements by raising the house to two-and-a-half stories.
Washington had rooms added to the north and south ends, unifying the whole with the addition of the cupola and two-story piazza overlooking the Potomac River. The final expansion increased the mansion to 21 rooms and an area of 11, square feet. Washington had been expanding the estate by the purchase of surrounding parcels of land since the late s and was still adding to the estate well into the s, including the River Farm estate.
He took a scientific approach to farming and kept extensive and meticulous records of both labor and results. In a letter dated 20 September , Washington writes about receiving poor returns for his tobacco production:. Can it be otherwise than a little mortifying then to find, that we, who raise none but Sweetscented Tobacco, and endeavour I may venture to add, to be careful in the management of it, however we fail in the execution, and who by a close and fixed corrispondance with you, contribute so largely to the dispatch of your Ships in this Country shoud [ sic ] meet with such unprofitable returns?
In the same letter he asks about the prices of flax and hemp , with a view to their production:. In order thereto you woud do me a singular favour in advising of the general price one might expect for good Hemp in your Port watered and prepared according to Act of Parliament, with an estimate of the freight, and all other Incident charges pr.
Tonn that I may form some Idea of the profits resulting from the growth. I should be very glad to know at the sametime how rough and undressd Flax has generally, and may probably sell; for this year I have made an Essay in both, and altho I suffer pretty considerably by the attempt, owing principally to the severity of the Drougth [ sic ], and my inexperience in the management I am not altogether discouraged from a further prosecution of the Scheme provided I find the Sales with you are not clogd with too much difficulty and expence.
The tobacco market had declined, and many planters in northern Virginia converted to mixed crops. Like them, by Washington had ceased growing tobacco at Mount Vernon and had replaced the crop with wheat, corn, and other grains. Besides hemp and flax, he experimented with 60 other crops including cotton and silk. He also derived income from a gristmill which produced cornmeal and flour for export and also ground neighbors' grain for fees.
Washington similarly sold the services of the estate's looms and blacksmith. Washington built and operated a small fishing fleet, permitting Mount Vernon to export fish. Washington practiced the selective breeding of sheep in an effort to produce better quality wool. He was not as invested in animal husbandry as he was in cropping experiments, which were elaborate and included complex field rotations, nitrogen fixing crops and a range of soil amendments. The new crops were less labor-intensive than tobacco; hence, the estate had a surplus of slaves.
But Washington refused to break up families for sale. Washington began to hire skilled indentured servants from Europe to train the redundant slaves for service on and off the estate. It is estimated that during his two terms as President of the United States — , Washington spent a total of days in residence at Mount Vernon. After his presidency, Washington tended to repairs to the buildings, socializing, and further gardening. In his will, written several months before his death in December , George Washington left directions for the emancipation of all the slaves who belonged to him.
Of the slaves at Mount Vernon in , a little less than half, individuals, belonged to George Washington. Under the terms of his will, these slaves were to be set free upon Martha Washington's death. In accordance with state law, George Washington stipulated in his will that elderly slaves or those who were too sick to work were to be supported throughout their lives by his estate.
Children without parents, or those whose families were too poor or indifferent to see to their education, were to be bound out or apprenticed to masters and mistresses who would teach them reading, writing, and a useful trade, until they were ultimately freed at the age of twenty-five. When Martha Washington's first husband, Daniel Parke Custis , died without a will, she received a life interest in one-third of his estate, including the slaves.
Neither George nor Martha Washington could free these slaves by law. Upon Martha's death, these slaves reverted to the Custis estate and were divided among her grandchildren. By , slaves at Mount Vernon were part of this dower property.
Fearing that her deceased husband's slaves might kill her to gain their freedom, Martha signed a deed of manumission for them in December The slaves received their freedom on January 1, On December 12, , Washington spent several hours riding over the plantation, in snow, hail and freezing rain. He ate his supper later that evening without changing from his wet clothes. The following day, he awoke with a severe sore throat either quinsy or acute epiglottitis and became increasingly hoarse as the day progressed.
All the available medical treatments failed to improve his condition, and he died at Mount Vernon at around 10 pm on December 14, , aged On December 18, a funeral was held at Mount Vernon, where his body was interred. Southerners who wanted his body to remain at Mount Vernon defeated the measure. In accordance with his will, Washington was entombed in a family crypt he had built upon first inheriting the estate.
It was in disrepair by , so Washington's will also requested that a new, larger tomb be built. This was not executed until , nearly the centennial of his birth. The need for a new tomb was confirmed when an unsuccessful attempt was made to steal his skull. Southern opposition was intense, exacerbated by an ever-growing rift between North and South. Congressman Wiley Thompson of Georgia expressed the Southerners' fears when he said:.
Remove the remains of our venerated Washington from their association with the remains of his consort and his ancestors from Mount Vernon and from his native State, deposit them in this capitol, and then let a severance of the Union occur and behold the remains of Washington on a shore foreign to his native soil.
In , the bodies of George and Martha Washington, along with other members of the family, were moved from the old crypt to the new family tomb. It was placed on the right side of the gateway to the tomb. A similar structure was provided for Martha's remains, which was placed on the left.
Following Martha Washington's death in , George Washington's will was carried out in accordance with the terms of his bequests. The largest part of his estate, which included both his papers and Mount Vernon, passed to his nephew, Bushrod Washington , an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Bushrod Washington did not inherit much cash and was unable to support the upkeep of the estate's mansion on the proceeds from the property and his Supreme Court salary.
He sold some of his own slaves to gain working capital. After he died in , his wife, Jane Charlotte inherited the estate, and her son began managing it. As his funds dwindled and the wear and tear of hundreds of visitors began to take its toll, Washington could do little to maintain the mansion and its surroundings.
Washington suggested to the United States Congress that the federal government purchase the mansion. In , Washington sold the mansion and a portion of the estate's land to the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, which was under the leadership of Ann Pamela Cunningham. The estate served as a neutral ground for both sides during the Civil War, although fighting raged across the nearby countryside. Troops from both the Union and the Confederacy toured the building. The two women caretakers asked that the soldiers leave their arms behind and either change to civilian clothes or at least cover their uniforms.
They usually did as asked. Harrison Howell Dodge became the third resident superintendent in During his 52 years' overseeing the estate, he doubled the facility's acreage, improved the grounds, and added many historic artifacts to the collections. Dodge reviewed George Washington's writings about the estate, visited other Colonial-era gardens, and traveled to England to see gardens dating from the Georgian period. Using that knowledge, Dodge oversaw the restoration of the site and put in place a number of improvements that Washington had planned but had never implemented.
Charles Wall was assistant superintendent from to , then resident superintendent for 39 years. He oversaw restoration of the house and planted greenery consistent with what was used in the 18th century. In , a campaign he organized was successful in preserving as parkland areas in Maryland across the Potomac River from Mount Vernon, as part of an effort to retain the bucolic vista from the house.
Steamboats began to carry tourists to the Mount Vernon estate in In , the estate opened a reconstruction of George Washington's distillery on the site of Washington's original distillery, a short distance from his mansion on the Potomac River. The fully functional replica received special legislation from the Virginia General Assembly to produce up to 5, US gal 19, l of whiskey annually, for sale only at the Mount Vernon gift shop. Frank Coleman, spokesman for the Distilled Spirits Council that funded the reconstruction, said the distillery "will become the equivalent of a national distillery museum" and serve as a gateway to the American Whiskey Trail.
As of , the estate had received more than 85 million visitors. Each year on Christmas Day , Aladdin the Christmas Camel recreates Washington's hiring of a camel for 18 shillings to entertain his guests with an example of the animal that brought the Three Wise Men to Bethlehem to visit the newborn Jesus. Mount Vernon remains a privately owned property. The non-profit Mount Vernon Ladies' Association has not received any funds from the federal government to support the restoration and maintenance of the mansion and the estate's acre 2.
The association derives its income from charitable donations and the sales of tickets, produce and goods to visitors. These enable the Association to continue its mission "to preserve, restore, and manage the estate of George Washington to the highest standards and to educate visitors and people throughout the world about the life and legacies of George Washington, so that his example of character and leadership will continue to inform and inspire future generations.
The green stamp, which was the first in the series, also contained portraits of George Washington and Nathanael Greene , a Major General of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. In , a 1. The Liberty Issue was originally planned to honor six presidents, six famous Americans, and six historic national shrines.
