Welcome to the GWB&T, the George Washington Bookstore and Tavern. Our goal here at the GWB&T is to serve you as best we can, and to make you feel as comfortable as possible. George Washington once referred to his home, Mount Vernon, as a well resorted tavern. Friends and curious passers-by always flocked to the Washington home. The gracious George and Martha welcomed all, not only serving their guests food and entertaining them but also inviting them to stay the night.
