Bus Trip to George Washington's Mount Vernon

Bus Trip to George Washington's Mount Vernon

Join Homewood Museum’s director and curator, Julie Rose, Ph.D., and assistant curator, Michelle Fitzgerald, for an all-encompassing look at George Washington’s Mount Vernon. The day will begin with a tour of the gardens and outbuildings, including the Slave Memorial, Pioneer Farm, and the tomb of George and Martha Washington. Then, move inside for a tour of the mansion house’s first two floors, including the newly restored Front Parlor (2019) and Blue Room (2017).

Before the return trip to Baltimore, visitors will enjoy a box lunch and participate in an exclusive sit-down Q&A with Jessie MacCleod, the associate curator at George Washington's Mount Vernon and lead curator for the landmark exhibition, "Lives Bound Together: Slavery at George Washington's Mount Vernon." This experience will provide a rare opportunity to ask MacCleod about the challenges and rewards of interpreting the experiences of Mount Vernon’s enslaved workers.

Please note: Bus will depart promptly at 8 a.m. from Evergreen Museum & Library, 4545 N. Charles Street, Baltimore, MD 21210. Return to Evergreen by 5:30 p.m. (Traffic may impact return time.) Please wear comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Walking will be required. Box lunch provided.
