According to alextimes.com. “Since AHS acquired the property, neighbors have enjoyed walking the grounds, local clubs have used the property for annual events and couples have held their weddings in the gardens. When AHS announced it would be putting the property up for sale, the organization also informed members that it would be merging with the American Public Gardens Association.”

As per alextimes.com, “River Farm is most notable for its connection to George Washington, who purchased the land in 1760 and renamed it River Farm in reference to its proximity and view of the Potomac River, according to AHS. The house, which fell into disrepair over the years, and surrounding grounds passed through various owners before Enid Haupt, a philanthropist, avid gardener, and member of the AHS board, purchased the property in 1973.”
