History is an important part of not only school, but being human. There’s no wonder why history is one of the four main core classes taught in school alongside math, English, and science. While many don’t understand the importance of looking back on things in the past, others are intrigued by what history can teach about us moving forward. Take the presidency for example. Presidents come and go. You’ve probably seen at least two or three inaugurations in your lifetime. As we’re all aware, the presidency began with George Washington, the first official president of the United States. This February, why not teach your children about George Washington? Say “Happy Birthday” to George Washington when you visit the Mary Washington House!
