Ever wanted to own a piece of history? Here’s your chance! The historic 18th-century Bel Air estate in Woodbridge, Virginia, will be auctioned on April 18. It was built in 1740 on the site of a former frontier fort and has been beautifully preserved over the years.
It was home to George Washington’s first biographer, Parson Weems, who made the cherry tree story famous. George and Martha Washington actually slept here during their honeymoon on their way to Mount Vernon, and Thomas Jefferson was once a guest, too. Take a look!
