Mount Vernon Stamp Label Artwork


Mount Vernon is a historic national landmark and former plantation of the first president of the United States, George Washington and his wife, Martha. The estate is on the banks of the Potomac River in Fairfax County, Virginia. It is located south of Washington, DC and Alexandria, VA and across the river from Prince George's County, MD.

The Washington family acquired land in the area in 1674. Around 1734, the family embarked on an expansion of its estate that continued under George Washington, who began leasing the estate in 1754 before becoming its sole owner in 1761.

The original mansion was built around 1734 by George Washington's father, Augustine. George Washington expanded the house twice, once in the late 1750s and again in the 1770s. It remained Washington's home for the rest of his life. Following his death in 1799, under the ownership of several successive generations of the family, the estate progressively declined as revenues were insufficient to maintain it adequately. It wasn’t until 1858 that the house’s historical importance was recognized and saved from ruin by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.

The pecan tree featured below was removed in Jan 2014 due to the risks of the tree damaging the Mansion. George Washington did not plant this tree. He didn't have any trees of this size close to his home. It is believed the pecan tree was planted about 60 years after he passed away, around 1860, making it an estimated 154 years old. The tree stood approximately 145 feet tall and weighed an estimated 50 tons.

Mount Vernon was memorialized with a 1½¢ stamp on February 22, 1956. The Mount Vernon stamp illustrates a picturesque view of Washington's home facing the Potomac River.
