The George Washington Foundation includes Washington's boyhood home, Ferry Farm, and his sister's house, Kenmore Plantation. George Washington was 6 years old in 1738 when his family moved to a farm in Stafford County, Virginia. A visit to Ferry Farm starts in the Visitor Center where there are displays of colonial and Civil War artifacts found on the property and the archaeology lab, where archaeologists can usually be seen working Monday through Friday. After leaving the Visitor Center, guests can enjoy the gardens that feature plants grown in the 18th century. Then it's on to exploring the rest of the grounds (approximately 80 acres). On this self-guided tour, visitors can see the site where the Washington house stood overlooking the Rappahannock River, walk down the old ferry road, enjoy the hiking trails, and watch for birds in the Wild Meadow.
