Open 365 days of the year, Mount Vernon is the most popular historic estate in America. Over 85 million people have visited Mount Vernon since 1860, when the estate officially opened to the public. The estate, gardens, and farm of Mount Vernon totaled some 8,000 acres in the 18th century.
Visit fully functioning reconstructions of George Washington's Distillery® and Gristmill, located 2.7 miles from the estate’s main entrance. Watch the mighty gears turning and the stones grinding at our Gristmill, where Washington produced flour and cornmeal. Within our functioning distillery, you can see where we make George Washington's whiskey. In 1799, it was one of the largest whiskey distilleries in America. Open to the public from April through October. Tickets are included with general admission.
