Built in 1539, near the picturesque town of Banbury, England, Sulgrave Manor is the ancestral home of George Washington.

Because of a very special relationship between concerned citizens of both Great Britain and the United States of America, Sulgrave Manor is now a wonderful attraction and example of a 16th century Tudor Manor House and garden.

Its roots are deep and lasting as it echoes from our 17th century American shores back to 16th century England. The most important job for us is to help keep it thriving.

Today when you tour Sulgrave Manor you see the permanent exhibitions of the life and work of George Washington and his family.

It is open to the public with educational programs for schoolchildren to see how life was in early Elizabethan times. The Manor not only has educational programs for visitors, but many weddings, family parties, and corporate gatherings take place on the grounds. Please learn more at
www.sulgravemanor.com regarding hours of operation, admission prices, programs, events, and more.

It is estimated that the total cost of maintaining Sulgrave Manor per year could be as much as $400,000. You can see how important contributions are to maintain the "perpetual care" of this beautiful old Manor, which is our overseas treasure.
