The guided tour is a must to get into the George Washington's house and see how our first president was living at the time. Very interesting if you are a historic buff.

We visited here on the way to the FDR library. The guide was very knowledgeable about this house, and even better she knew some Washington trivia. I enjoyed the interaction with her.
