  • Interesting and worth a peek to see George Washington's Ferry Farm. Really kind of disappointing; will see the remaining farm land that our first President lived at from age 5 to 21. The actual house ...  more »
  • While not the most exciting thing to do in the area, it was interesting to know that George Washington was there as a child. I especially enjoyed walking down to the water where the ferries ran. 
  • I came here to see history. Well, I did see the site where George Washington lived as a boy. Unfortunately, the actual house is not here. The house is currently being rebuilt. The Visitor center is ho...  more »

  • We were headed to the Pope Creek Childhood Home of George Washington years ago when we observed a very small sign posted that said boyhood home of George Washington, Ferry farm. We backed up went in, parked, our car, just a few people digging on the property, we walked around, and then went down an old road towards the river, it got rough and as I was afraid of snakes we left. That was our first experience with Ferry farm. Years later went in again several digs were going on and much info what was found in those digs. There was a fairly large Visitor Center so we went though that. On we went to Pope Creek and more changes there, went into the Memorial House where a Park Ranger was talking, also where the original home was marked out. A nice Visitors Center there too. At some point we went into the home of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, and the Feilding Home. What a wonderful area to visit. Not sure of the dates now as we have visited the battlefields 2 or 3 times. Extra note My 2 times great-grandfather was with the 16th. Co. A Maine Infantry in the Civil War. Seems to me it was the first battle he was in. Va. is high on our list for Vacations.
