36th International Conference Includes Mt. Vernon Tour
The first day of the 36th International Churchill Conference, which will take place in Washington, D.C. at the Georgetown Marriott October 29–31, will include an optional tour to Mount Vernon, George Washington’s historic home on the banks of the Potomac River. To register, please CLICK HERE.
In place of Mt. Vernon, attendees may also choose to tour Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens in Washington that is the former residence of businesswoman, philanthropist, and collector Marjorie Merriweather Post. Hillwood is known for its decorative arts collection that focuses heavily on a Russian collection that includes Fabergé eggs and one of the country’s finest collections of orchids.
The two separate tours are scheduled for the same time on Tuesday, October 29th, so it is necessary to choose one or the other. Tour admission is automatically included for all Blenheim Package ticket holders. If you prefer not to select the Blenheim Package, you may still sign up for either tour when you register for the conference at a cost of $50 per person.
Along with the many interesting speakers and events, there will be an exclusive display provided by the Churchill Book Collector of San Diego, which specializes in fine and rare editions of books and periodicals by Winston Churchill. Proprietor Marc Kuritz will have a selection of inventory available for purchase.
More program details will be posted during the coming months. We look forward to seeing you in Washington this fall!
