Mt Vernon also is the home of George Washington and his wife, Martha’s tomb.  Apparently, Mt Vernon had some special visitors and they were granted permission to open the tomb to see the actual caskets where George and Martha’s remains are.  We happened to go by the tomb right before they closed it up and they let us have a rare glimpse inside.

  1. Isn’t it totally awesome that you were able to see that? It really gives you a sense of connection with the people who made the country what it is, doesn’t it?

  2. How fortunate to get to see inside! Elegant and peaceful there. Am anxiously awaiting more “touristy” photos…they really ARE interesting, Tammy…nothing wrong with doing the tourist thing to give you some memories to scrap!
