History of the Monument
George Washington Birthplace National Monument preserves the sentiment of the Washingtons' home site and farmland in America. Arriving to Westmoreland County in 1657 as an immigrant, John Washington settled on the scenic and fertile land near Bridges Creek in Virginia. Ideal for tobacco and wheat farming, generations of the Washington family farmed these lands, establishing a legacy of leadership, public service and love for the area. The amazing heritage of the Washington family ultimately led to the achievement of George Washington as the "Father of Our Country."
