Mount VernonĂ¢â‚¬â„¢s Hidden Gems Tour

Good Shepherd Housing (GSH) presents Mount Vernon’s Hidden Gems Tour

This is your opportunity to see Mount Vernon like a local. Even local residents are unaware of the rich history we have here in Mount Vernon, outside of the famous estate of George Washington.

Join GSH’s Development Director, Candice Bennett, as she leads a unique 4-hour tour through Mount Vernon. This tour is set up through Airbnb, but is a new fundraising opportunity that gives GSH a chance to showcase the history of our community and highlighting our mission and housing. Every tour benefits our mission.

Our tour will begin with a special tour of Gunston Hall, home to George Mason, considered to be the Father of the Bill of Rights. From there we’ll visit the Gum Springs Museum with GSM President Ron Chase and learn about one of the first communities of freedmen founded by West Ford, a freed slave and former foreman to the house servants at Mount Vernon.

Depending on availability, we will also visit one of Good Shepherd Housing‘s affordable apartments and hear how our mission has evolved with our changing community. Driving past Fort Belvoir, established as Camp A. A. Humphreys during World War I, you’ll spy the Woodlawn Quaker Meetinghouse, home to abolitionists who supported the economic independence of free African-Americans in Woodlawn and Gum Springs.

We will conclude our day with a tour and beer tasting at one of Fairfax County’s award winning breweries, Fair Winds Brewing.

Advance reservations are required and must be booked through the Airbnb website (link below). Tours will be canceled if there are no registrations 24 hours prior to the start time, to help us avoid a transportation cancellation fee.

Mount Vernon's Hidden Gems Tour

Good Shepherd Housing (GSH) presents Mount Vernon’s Hidden Gems Tour

This is your opportunity to see Mount Vernon like a local. Even local residents are unaware of the rich history we have here in Mount Vernon, outside of the famous estate of George Washington.

Join GSH’s Development Director, Candice Bennett, as she leads a unique 4-hour tour through Mount Vernon. This tour is set up through Airbnb, but is a new fundraising opportunity that gives GSH a chance to showcase the history of our community and highlighting our mission and housing. Every tour benefits our mission.

Our tour will begin with a special tour of Gunston Hall, home to George Mason, considered to be the Father of the Bill of Rights. From there we’ll visit the Gum Springs Museum with GSM President Ron Chase and learn about one of the first communities of freedmen founded by West Ford, a freed slave and former foreman to the house servants at Mount Vernon.

Depending on availability, we will also visit one of Good Shepherd Housing‘s affordable apartments and hear how our mission has evolved with our changing community. Driving past Fort Belvoir, established as Camp A. A. Humphreys during World War I, you’ll spy the Woodlawn Quaker Meetinghouse, home to abolitionists who supported the economic independence of free African-Americans in Woodlawn and Gum Springs.
