DIRECTIONS TO GEORGE WASHINGTON’S FERRY FARM: From Interstate 95, take Exit 130 heading East on Route 3. After about 1 mile, you will drive down a long hill. At the bottom of the hill, move to the left lane as you pass under a highway bridge (Route 1). Turn left on Route 3 Business (William St.). Follow William St. through downtown Fredericksburg and cross over the Rappahannock River (be sure you are in the right lane after crossing the bridge). Continue on Route 3 Business East to the third traffic light at the intersection of Ferry Road. As you pass through the traffic light you will see Ferry Farm on your right. The entrance is about 1/10 mile past Ferry Road.
