visit Ferry Farm. It's the place where the United States' first president, George Washington, grew up. He lived there from the time he was 6 years old until he was 19. The legend is incorrect that he threw a silver dollar across the Rappahannock River, which separates southern Stafford County, where Ferry Farm is, from the city of Fredericksburg. He did, however, throw a stone across the river.
Archaeological digging has revealed early Native American habitation at Ferry Farm. Work is continuing on finding the original farm buildings and housing from when George Washington was young.
The site of his boyhood home is open from Monday thru Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 12 noon until 5 p.m. There is no admission but donations are accepted. watching it grow up along with me
