George Washington's Ferry Farm - Fredericksburg, VA
Bay Journal Article:

George Washington's boyhood roots revealed at Ferry Farm (April 2007) - Scalloped edges created by split-rail fencing cast a decidedly colonial atmosphere at George Washington’s Ferry Farm in the heart of Fredericksburg, VA. On a blustery day in early March, the fence gives way to the pale yellow hues of dormant fescue grass waving across expansive pastures.

Support for Gateways Network grows; 7 new sites added (June 2005) - The National Park Service director, during a recent trip to Annapolis, indicated that there is continued support for the Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network but stopped short of endorsing a new National Park focused on the Bay.
