Overview
Mount Vernon was the home of the first President of the United States, George Washington. It is located on the banks of (and looks down upon) the Potomac River. Mount Vernon was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960 and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. When Augustine Washington owned the estate, it was known as Little Hunting Creek Plantation. Lawrence Washington, George's older half-brother, inherited the estate and changed the name to Mount Vernon in honor of Vice Admiral Edward Vernon, Lawrence's commanding officer in the British Navy. When George Washington inherited Mount Vernon he kept the name. But the M ount Vernon is hardly the same property he inherited, from his brother, because he expanded the house and made it his own. This is why it is truly the house that George built Once again Penelope Dyan and John D. Weigand have combined efforts to create a book for kids that is fun and educational and looks great on your coffee table. Dyan has taken her talents as a former teacher and put them to work in her own very special way, The photography of John D. Weigand hits the mark again with his unqiue available light only photographs
