George Washington's Ferry Farm

George Washington Boyhood Home
George Washington was 6 years old in 1738 when his family moved to a farm in Stafford County, Virginia. The Washingtons called this place the Home Farm but it later became known as Ferry Farm because people crossed the Rappahannock River on a ferry from the farm to the town of Fredericksburg. The Washingtons did not own or operate the ferry but used it frequently to get to and from town. Far from being the rustic cottage of common perception, the Washington house was a much larger, one-and-a-half-story residence, 53 feet, 8-1/2 inches by 28 feet, 4 inches, perched on a bluff overlooking the Rappahannock River.
