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, 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.
Once purchased the 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 (now Sulgrave Manor Trust) was established to preserve Sulgrave Manor for the public benefit and promote its historic and symbolic role in Anglo-American relations.
Today Sulgrave Manor is an independent charity, existing entirely through the generosity of our donors, supporters and visitors.
