'As early as 1858, Maine has been represented on the board of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, and contributed to its important mission of preservation and education,' said Meg Nichols, vice regent for Maine. 'I hope that you will join me for this special event on Oct. 11 and continue our state's legacy of support and connectedness to this very special place.'

Washington's beautiful riverside estate includes the Mansion, outbuildings, tomb, working farm and visitor facilities with 25 galleries and theaters. The Ford Orientation Center and Donald W. Reynolds Museum and Education Center feature interactive displays, movies and immersive experiences in addition to exhibiting hundreds of Washington-related artifacts. More than 85 million people have visited Mount Vernon since 1860, when the estate officially opened to the public by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
