On a quiet evening in 1853 with a full moon shining, Louisa Dalton Bird Cunningham saw George Washington's once majestic Mansion in a state of complete decay and disrepair. She hastily wrote to her daughter concerning its crumbling condition and set Ann Pamela Cunningham on course for a remarkable journey to save Mount Vernon. Miss Cunningham called upon the support of ladies of the South, and eventually the rest of the nation, through letters published in a number of newspapers. Women took up the cause and began making contributions and the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association was born. For 150 years, the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association has stood at the forefront of the field of historic preservation, safeguarding the nation's most-visited and iconic historic home.
