The Mount Vernon estate, which totaled nearly 8,000 acres at its completion, was divided into five farms named Mansion, River, Muddy Hole, Dogue, and Union.
Although four of the farms were the focus of intensive agricultural activity, the 500 acres directly around the mansion were developed as a gentleman's country seat; a new world version of an English country house of the period, located within a deep border of woods with rolling meadows, vistas, and groves of trees. Between the mansion and the river shore was an extensive park and below the kitchen garden was an enclosed vineyard. Small areas were cultivated but these were usually restricted to testing new crop and agricultural methods.

Each of the two placements have the 18th century map of George Washington's Five Farms on the front and an enlargement of the Mansion Farm portion of the map on the back. The heat resistant placemats are approximately 11 ¼" x 16 ¾" x ¼". Made in the USA.
