Two famous historic sites are located within 15 miles of Dumfries: Gunston Hall Plantation and George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. Gunston Hall was the property of George Mason, an early American thinker whose ideas shaped many state constitutions. Mason's home, built in the late 1750s, and other reconstructed buildings on the site provide visitors the opportunity to learn about the 18th-century plantation lifestyle. The 550-acre site is a National Historic Landmark.
