Washington's Birth Place

This weekend we went to Virginia to visit Chris' family. On the way we always pass George Washington's Birth place and I always comment about visiting but we never seem to have time. This weekend we did have some time so we stopped and I really enjoyed the tour and a chance to see where our first President was born and lived until he was 3 years old. There are no pictures of the original house which burnt down on Christmas day 1779. The foundations are still present and a memorial house was built nearby giving an idea what it would have been like.
