Mount Vernon Group Tour
Dean Norton, Head of Horticulture at Mount Vernon Estate, will lead BASNCR members and their guests on a tour of Mount Vernon’s gardens and grounds. With over 48 years’ experience working on the estate, Dean is an authority on its beauty, use, history, and preservation. We will convene in the Mount Vernon Visitors’ Center at 9:30 a.m. for a 10:00 tour. Dean has waived his fee for us, but we will need to pay admission to the estate. The cost will be $15 per person if we are a group of 25 or more ($20 if we are fewer), collected at the site. This includes entry to the mansion, which you can visit following the garden tour. There is a variety of eateries onsite for those wishing to have lunch. We will need to know numbers in advance, so please reserve your spot by emailing Anne Clippinger. Friends and family are very welcome.
