Fred'burg Cemetery Tour - It's not too late

Docent introducing us to a number of Masonic Cemetery residents.
The Masonic Cemetery is next to the James Monroe Museum
We enjoyed the 11:00 tour this morning with a visit to the Mary Washington Monument, her meditation rock, and the Masonic Cemetery.  We skipped the tour of St. George's Cemetery since our history club visited that cemetery just a few weeks ago.

Meditation Rock
This is where George Washington's mother, Mary, came to pray for her family.
A steep drop off that in 2013 looks down on a playground and tennis courts

The trolley was full for the tour, and I suspect on this beautiful October weekend, the rest of the tours will fill up fast. 


  1. Did you have your tricorner hat and wig on as well? Looks like a fun tour and a lovely day for it as well :)

  2. Gosh, I knew I forgot something! It was fun to "meet" these long ago residents.
