George Washington’s father, Augustine Washington, built a modest one and a half story house in the Mount Vernon site in 1734. George was two years old. His elder half-brother Lawrence lived at the property from 1741 until his death in 1752. George Washington began leasing the property in 1754. Although he did not inherit it outright until 1761, he expanded the house in the last 1750s, raising the roof to make the Mansion two and a half stories high. In 1774, he began to add the north and south wings, the cupola and piazza to create the structure we see today.
Made of a soft 52% cotton/48% polyester blend.
