voice one:

welcome to this is america in voa special english. i'm barbara klein.

voice two:

and i'm steve ember. george washington won the revolutionary war and was the first president of the united states. but can the man known as the father of his country still command attention?

voice one:

george washington's home at mount vernon

this week on our program, we take you to a place where a lot of money has just been invested to make sure the answer is yes. that place is george washington's mount vernon estate and gardens in virginia.

(music)

voice two:

george washington lived in a number of homes as a boy and young man. but he spent most of his life at mount vernon, twenty-four kilometers to the south of the city of washington.

he helped choose where to build the new capital city and the white house. yet george washington is the only president who never lived in the white house -- it was completed after he left office. when he was president, new york city and, after that, philadelphia served as the nation's capital.
