How Do We Honor George Washington Today? - 02/21/11 12:30 PM
Rather than rushing out to see what is on sale today for "President's Day," let's take a little time to consider our first President, George Washington (1732-1739). Did you know that: As the leader of the first successful revolution against a colonial empire in world history, Washington became an international icon for liberation and nationalism.

It's hard for the general public to imagine how important a part they can play in preserving our built environment, starting with their own homes. If we enjoy visiting places like Mount Vernon, can you take yourself back to 1853, when the now famous porch was being held up by using ships' masts, and the paint was peeling, the roof failing? This was the inspiration for the first preservation movement in this still new country. Ann Pamela Cunningham wrote a letter to the Charleston Mercury, asking the women of the south to join together and form the Mount Vernon (0 comments)
