The white glue softens the paper and it may lead to misshapen parts if you do not allow them to dry well before proceeding further with assembling. Click here to watch our paper model building tips.

Mount Vernon, located in Fairfax County, Virginia, a historic American landmark, was a home of George Washington, the first President of the United States. Overlooking the Potomac River, this expansive estate offers a glimpse into 18th-century plantation life and the legacy of one of America's founding fathers.

Originally a modest farmhouse built by Washington's father in 1734, George Washington acquired Mount Vernon in 1754 and over the next several decades, expanded and transformed it into a grand mansion with a distinctive façade. The main house, built of wood in a loose Palladian style, is an excellent example of Colonial Georgian architecture, characterized by its symmetrical design, classic proportions, and a large piazza overlooking the river. Its architecture had a great influence on the development of mansions throughout the USA.

The estate covers about 500 acres and includes not just the mansion but also numerous outbuildings, gardens, a working farm, and a distillery and gristmill.

Inside, the mansion is furnished with original objects and reproductions, reflecting Washington's tastes and his times. The house contains many notable rooms, including the iconic two-story Central Passage and the West Parlor, where Washington entertained his guests.

Mount Vernon also holds significant historical importance as the final resting place of George and Martha Washington.
