Feb. 18, 2017
MOUNT VERNON, Va. (AP) — Mount Vernon , George Washington's northern Virginia estate, is offering free admission for the President's Day holiday.
Special events planned for Monday include a wreath-laying and a concert by the Air Force Strings.
While the holiday has commonly become known as Presidents Day, the federal government still designates the third Monday in February as a holiday celebrating Washington's Birthday. The actual birthday is Feb. 22.
The nation's first president would be 285.
