George Washington Birthplace Announces Public Forum for General Management Plan

George Washington Birthplace National Monument

National Park News

Welcome to the General Management Plan for George Washington Birthplace National Monument. This national park preserves and interprets the history and resources associated with George Washington. The park contains a substantial part of the Washington family plantation, the site of the house in which George Washington was born, many features commemorating Washington, and a wealth of natural resources.

The National Park Service (NPS) is beginning a multi-year planning effort examining the condition of the park and discussing what it should look like in the future. We invite you to join us as we develop a blueprint for the park?s future. This blueprint, called a General Management Plan, will guide the park?s resource protection and facility development efforts and goals for the visitor?s experience over the next 15 to 20 years.

The first step is to identify the resource management, facility development, interpretation and visitor experience issues that the public feels are important to discuss during this planning effort. Join us for this project?s first public meeting on Tuesday, March 14 to discuss your thoughts and concerns. The meeting will be held at the A.T. Johnson School in Montross, Virginia from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Or, send your comments to me electronically at or by postal mail.

I look forward to beginning this process and hearing from you.
