Marquis de Lafayette & Mary Washington Tour

The relationship between George Washington and the Marquis de Lafayette is well known, but Lafayette shared a special bond with other members of the Washington family. In the spring of 1781, Lafayette made an impromptu visit to Fredericksburg to meet Mary Washington and Betty Washington Lewis. This visit created a bond between the two that endured until Mary’s death in 1789. Join Mary Washington House site manager, Michelle L. Hamilton on a special guided tour detailing the events surrounding Lafayette’s visit in 1781.

Tickets are nonrefundable. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your tour start time.
