An Announcement from Historic Kenmore
and George Washington’s Ferry Farm


Dear friends and guests of Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm,

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation at the national, state, and local levels continues to evolve at a rapid rate, The George Washington Foundation has closed its historic sites.

Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm have closed to visitors beginning Monday, March 16 until Friday, April 24.

At that time, we will re-assess based on recommendations from federal, state, and local governments and medical authorities. We are monitoring and evaluating the COVID-19 developments, and are following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Those recommendations will inform the Foundation’s decision as to when it will re-open to the public.

We will keep you updated through our website, Lives & Legacies blog and Facebook page, along with providing plenty of interesting stories for you to follow about the Washington and Lewis families. Stay tuned on these channels for updates as to when our sites will reopen.

The leadership and staff of The George Washington Foundation appreciate your understanding as we navigate this difficult situation. To all of our friends of Historic Kenmore and George Washington’s Ferry Farm—stay safe and healthy. Thank you for your continued support.


Explore Ferry Farm with the iPad tour, Uncovering George Washington’s Youth, tour the Washington House, and view the archaeology laboratory and “The Science of History at Ferry Farm” exhibit in the Visitor Center!
