They live in the Washington DC area so we went to visit George Washington's plantation, Mount Vernon, while I was there.
To my delight there was a 1/12th scale version of the mansion in the Orientation Centre.

|Most of the bedrooms were for guests, but this is the Nelly Custis bedchamber for Martha's grandaughter|
Also see the video here.
|Of course the full size mansion was gorgeous. We were not allowed to take pictures inside.|

The room behind is the New Room (Or Large Dining Room)

|I really enjoyed the tour of the estate. It is very interesting to see how they lived in those days.|
I had a lovely Canada Day weekend visiting the historic sites of our neighbours to the south.
I would highly recommend visiting Mount Vernon to see the wonderful dollhouse as well as the beautiful estate.
