Tie A Ribbon!

Honor & Remember America' First Mother

$535 raised

$500 goal

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

This October, join us in remembering all those brave women who have battled breast cancer, and to honor our friends and loved ones who do so today.

Throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month, members of the public are invited to tie a pink ribbon to the fence in front of the Mary Washington House. This free activity brings visibility to the disease and allows community members to honor or remember the courageous women of their choice. Visit the Mary Washington House to prepare your ribbon, or reserve one online and we'll tie it on for you!

We appreciate any donations made to offset the cost of this annual project. Information about breast cancer in the 1700s can be found here.

Washington Heritage Museums welcomes the assistance of the Falls of the Rappahannock Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution during this awareness program.
