Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden January 2017 Events

I first visited the Mount Vernon Hotel Museum and Garden in 2011. It is such a unique place to check out, and filled with so much history. They have events all year round, I thought I would highlight their selections for January. If you have done all the "tourist" spots in the city, plan a visit here. They also have many events for children as well, which are really fantastic.
