Pohick Church and Gunston Hall

We visited these places on a gray, rainy day which was kind of nice.  Pohick Church was both George Washington's and George Mason's church and it was a good spot to visit, both for colonial and Civil War history.  The grounds are lovely too and it's a pleasant spot.

Gunston Hall, George Mason's home, is a few miles away.  The grounds are fairly large and there's a small visitor centers, but the main thing to do there is tour the house.  We were pretty much the only people around that day so they did a tour just for the two of us and it was really interesting.

The area was lovely too, quiet and rural, despite being so close to DC.
