Mount Vernon Overview
Mount Vernon, Virginia, is a community in eastern Fairfax County. It is most famous for being the location of the Mount Vernon estate, the home of George Washington. For the most part, Mount Vernon is now a suburban communty, but with a keen sense of history. Mount Vernon is bordered on one side by the Potomac River and on the other by Richmond Highway (US Highway 1). The Fort Belvoir US Army post is immediately to the south of Mount Vernon.
Mount Vernon is easily reached by car via the George Washington Memorial Parkway south of Alexandria, VA, or by US Highway 1 and then Mount Vernon Highway.
