George Washington prepared this manuscript map of his farm adjacent to the Mount Vernon estate in 1766. Known as River Farm, it was one of five tracts that made up the eight thousand acres he owned in the vicinity of Little Hunting Creek, less than ten miles south of Alexandria, Virginia. The map is also one of the few examples of American colonial plantation or "estate" maps in the Library of Congress's collections.
