Mount Vernon COLLEEN Stewart

Mount Vernon was General George Washington's home

The back porch served as a cooler place to sit during the hot Virginia summers
The view from the backyard overlooks the Potomac River
The breeze ways connect the main residence to the kitchen and slaves' quarters
This is a view of the kitchen
Overseer's Quarters
This is an outside view of the formal dining room
The bright green coloring of the formal dining room was very fashionable at the time
This is a view of the main hall from the back door
This is a drawing of the music room, where family would gather to listen to the grandchildren play
