Situated near the Washingtons’ family home at Ferry Farm, their legacy inspired the décor of room 203. The Washington family resided across the Rappahannock River, on the Ferry Farm Plantation after Augustine Washington purchased in the property in 1738. Comprised of eight members (mother, Mary Ball; father, Augustine; children, George, Betty, Samuel, John, Charles, and Mildred), The Washingtons along with several slaves called this 600-acre plantation their home. At 11 years old George inherited Ferry Farm following Augustine’s death and lived at the home until his early twenties. Until 1772, Mary Ball resided on and managed the property, at which she moved to the Mary Washington House (located one block away from the Inn) in order to be closer to her daughter, Betty.
Many of the Washingtons lived and worked in Fredericksburg. Betty lived with her husband Fielding Lewis at the Kenmore Plantation. Charles built his home at 1304 Caroline Street in 1760, which opened as the Rising Sun Tavern in 1792. Provided the Washingtons involvement in the Fredericksburg area, the Kenmore Inn could not be complete without a room in their commemoration.
