Dr. Cassandra Good from Marymount University will present her research on what it was like for George Washington’s step-grandchildren to grow up at Mount Vernon and their lives as adults. One of those step-grandchildren was Nelly Lewis, who lived at Audley Farm later in her life. She has written a book and will host a talk, "Growing Up At Mt. Vernon," on September 17, 2023, at 2pm at Audley Farm. Click here to register.
