George Washington Birthplace National Monument

National Park Service, Virginia.

Established to honor the 200th birthday of the first president of the United States, the Birthplace represents more than a century of local, state, and national efforts to memorialize Washington. The Washingtons shaped an American identity through their encounters and relationships with Native Americans, enslaved Africans, and other Europeans, all struggling to find their place in this world.
