Nowhere is the county’s historic legacy more evident than in its southern corridor, along the Richmond Highway and George Washington Memorial Parkway.

Rees, Executive Director of George Washington’s Mount Vernon; Greg Tuminaro, Curator, Woodlawn Plantation; Tom Lainhoff, Director, Gunston Hall; and Mary Ann Patterson, Director of Public Programs, American Horticultural Society (at River Farm).
