Counted Cross Stitch Kit
|In his day, Washington was known as the "first farmer of America." One of his most creative innovations was a 16-sided "round" barn, designed in 1792, to accommodate the indoor threshing of wheat by his horses. The present life-sized replica of the barn is based on Washington's own design drawings, his list of materials, and a wealth of original documentation. This remarkable structure was erected by Mount Vernon's expert craftsmen using the same types of tools, materials, and building methods known to Washington. The barn is the centerpiece of "George Washington: Pioneer Farmer," a hands-on agricultural exhibit generously funded by the W.K.Kellogg Foundation.|
