Sulgrave Manor Trust is an independent charity with 2 legal objectives
As part of the centenary commemorations for the Treaty of Ghent, which established peace between Britain and the United States of America after the War of 1812, some of the most influential people on both sides of the Atlantic funded the restoration of Sulgrave Manor, the home of George Washington’s English ancestors.
Once purchased, restoration was delayed by the outbreak of the First World War, and Sulgrave Manor finally opened to the public on 21 June 1921. In the same year, Sulgrave Manor Board was established and over one hundred years later the re-named Sulgrave Manor Trust is still an independent charity, existing entirely through the generosity of our donors, supporters and visitors.
In the past the Manor has been presented in various ways, including costumed guides as a Tudor experience. As with all modern attractions we have moved on and now we focus on fascinating stories of individuals impact on society, migration and integration as part of the History of the Washington family and Sulgrave Manor.
We need your help to look after the Manor and our collection for future generations to enjoy. Please support our work, even the smallest donation can make a difference.
