The Mount Aventine Manor House will be closed for visitors until at least the end of April because of concerns over the safety of visitors and volunteers due to the COVID 19 virus.  Programs scheduled for April and May, including the Spring Tea, will be re-scheduled and new dates posted on the web site as soon as conditions are more clear. In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful park.  Thank you for your consideration.

Founded in 1957 to protect the view from George Washington’s Mount Vernon across the Potomac River, the Accokeek Foundation was one of the nation’s first land trusts. The Foundation continues land conservation efforts to ensure continued protection of the viewshed and working landscapes.
The Foundation also manages the National Colonial Farm, a living history museum established in 1958 which depicts a Maryland middling family farm on the eve of the American Revolution. Through heritage breed livestock and seed saving programs, nearly extinct heirloom crops and animals are preserved for future generations.
