This 152-acre historic district was part of George Washington's Mount Vernon estate. In 1799 Washington gave the Woodlawn tract to his step-granddaughter Eleanor Park Custis and her husband, Lawrence Lewis. Northern Quakers bought the property in 1846 and sold parcels to white and free African American farmers. The historic district includes the Lewises' Woodlawn mansion (ca. 1805), the Quakers' meetinghouse and burial ground, and a cemetery established by Woodlawn Methodist Church, an African American congregation. Also preserved here are George Washington's gristmill, reconstructed in 1933, and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Pope-Leighey House, completed in 1941 and moved here in 1965.
