This American landmark was originally a one and one-half story house built by President Washington's father in 1735. President Washington acquired Mount Vernon in 1754, and over the next 45 years slowly enlarged the home to create the magnificent 21-room residence we see today. George Washington personally supervised each renovation and advised on design, construction, decoration, and landscaping—even during the Revolutionary War.
