A historical pitstop

On our way home from Virginia, we decided to go to one of the few Virginia historical sites we'd never been to, George Washington's boyhood home, Ferry Farm.

There was a small inside museum displaying artifacts related to George Washington's life growing up at Ferry Farm. A lot of the items were excavated on the site. The site itself is still under construction.

A lot of the time, the kids were more interested in their gymnastic skills, than they were in learning about old George!

We learned that it was here that George was supposed to throw a silver dollar over a river, the Rappahannock River, not the Potomac.

John tried to recreate George's legendary feat with a rock.

It was a cold, blustery day, and I just wanted to get in somewhere warm!

It was a nice little place to gleam some history and take a break from the drive to get home.
