Mary Washington Home / Fredericksburg Photography Series #1
My photographic series of Fredericksburg’s historical sites and Old Town events was influenced by my wife graduating and my granddaughter attending Mary Washington University. My wife Pat and daughter are well known in the Fine Art community of Fredericksburg.
Mary Washington Home: In 1772, George Washington purchased a house from Michael Robinson in Fredericksburg, Virginia for his mother. Mary Ball Washington spent her last seventeen years in this comfortable home. The white frame house sits on the corner of Charles and Lewis Streets and was in walking distance to Kenmore, home of Mary's daughter Betty Fielding Lewis.
Thanks for looking at my photos.
