Guide was very friendly and informative and knew her stuff about Mary Washington. Was a little disappointed because the house that Mary Washington lived in looks nothing like its current state.

George Washington bought this house for his mother after she got too old to live at Ferry Farm (across the river from Fredericksburg).

The house has been enlarged substantially since Mary Washington lived here, does not have the same floor plan, and the exterior is not painted the same color as it was during Mary’s residence.

Nevertheless, worth a stop if you are in Fredericksburg and you can buy a combo ticket to see this house, Charles Washington’s house/rising sun tavern and the Mercer apothecary for $24/adult. All of the sites are within walking distance of each other.

Must stop here if you are in Fredericksburg. Great history on the Washington's and their impact on the town of Fredericksburg. The tour was fantastic and loaded with family history.

Went early this morning. Small house. There is basically 2 rooms, an entrance hall and a small upstairs. A very nice garden and kitchen out back. We'd been during garden week before but inside was closed during that. So we just did the garden. This time we went in the house only (both are included with your pass). I recommend getting the Heritage pass which includes the Hugh Mercer Apothecary and The Rising Sun Tavern. The house belonged to George Washington's mother, and this is where she passed away. Coincidentally the day we visited was the 245th anniversary of her passing. A mere coincidence, but perhaps her presence there this day. There were a few pieces in there that belonged to her. No photos allowed in there... The reason I give this 5 stars was the docent/volunteer was super knowledgeable and pleasant. Enjoyed the info... so thanks to all those in service for the Heritage foundation, they are doing great work keeping history alive.

While we were on the Fredericksburg trolley tour, one of the historical homes we went by was the home of George Washington's mother, Mary. We decided after the trolley tour to make our way here to visit her home. Our tour guide was excellent and really showed his knowledge of colonial history. We always appreciate being able to visit a historic home, and really enjoyed our tour. A stop here is highly recommended if you are in the Fredericksburg area.

Our walking journey through the historic Fredericksburg brought us finally to Mary Washington House, the place we wanted to see. Our visit was shortened by the special event they were preparing. The house and the surroundings were very beautiful, and we tried to absorb as much as possible information. The special event had to be lovely in such a great place.

So, George got his Mom a kind of double room cottage with a loft, a bit of land and outbuildings. She had servants. She was a strong and resourceful woman who lived to a good age in hard times and was frequently seen out by her neighbors. that's the tour. There is another half of the house, but it's unconnected (later) to Mary. And no pictures in any case, which is a bizarre rule. Is there a copyright infringement issue??? There's a nice clock I'd liked to have a picture of and a bit of carving on one of the later chairs, but otherwise we're not talking sacred objects. On the plus side, the docents were more than happy to engage in post tour conversation, and that was probably the more enlightening part of the experience. You feel like you 'should' do this, and it's inexpensive enough that there's no great bother, just don't have too many expectations.

This is the home where George Washington's mother spent the last seventeen years of her life. Our docent, Heather, was so knowledgeable and answered all our questions. I bought her cookbook, too.

Wonderful history from a very interesting & informative tour guide. If you have time, stop in here! See where Washington slept when he visited his mother

You could say this was "the house that George built". When his mother was finally ready to leave his boyhood home - Ferry Farm - George built this house for his mother. It was so interesting to learn about this impressive woman.
