Things to see and do

A family browsing the Hall

Discover the hall 

Venture into this grand manor house and step back in time. The hall is most likely best known for being the ancestral home of George Washington since it was from right here in the North East that the Washington family (previously Hartburn family) took their name at the end of the 12th-century. Who knew?!
