It is where you can grab brochures, sign up for a tour, and just prepare yourself for your visit to George Washington's estate. It is a very spacious building and feels very inviting.

The public was invited for free tour of the mansion and grounds. The day was capped off with birthday cake and a concert from members of the U.S. Air Force Band.
