On February 22, 1732, George Washington was born on his family’s well-established Popes Creek tobacco farmland. Though he moved away at just three years old, George Washington returned during his teens to visit his half-brother, who inherited land from their father. The original house that Washington was born in unfortunately burned down Christmas Day, 1779, when William Washington, George’s nephew, owned the land.
Though it is unknown what the original house looked like, the Memorial House was constructed in 1931 to commemorate the Washington family’s legacy. Our patch features an image of the Memorial House. Put it on a jacket or bag to remember George Washington’s birthplace.
