Built by George Washington's sister, Betty Washington Lewis, and her husband, Fielding Lewis, this Georgian-style, brick mansion reflects the pre-Revolutionary-War wealth and status of the Fredericksburg merchant. A visit to Kenmore starts in the Crowninshield Museum building. A new introductory exhibit, The Patriots Lewis: What Would You Give, with accompanying hands-on activities for children, tells this powerful narrative through key pieces from the Foundation's collection of 18th-century furniture and decorative arts. The mansion has undergone a comprehensive refurnishing, and period furniture and interior details offer a descriptive setting for this historic story. Learn more about the refurnishing project via the blog, The Rooms at Kenmore. An interpreter will lead a 45-minute tour of the first floor of the house and the kitchen dependency. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the gardens and grounds at their leisure.
