Today’s animations are two different views of a Colonial-era cellar that may be attributed to George Washington and his family in the home where he grew up as a boy from the age of 6 until his early 20s. One quarter of the cellar was excavated in early July of 2014 at George Washington’s Ferry Farm and animations of the feature are present here. A second quarter of the cellar is currently being excavates and was scanned by Allen Huber using the Sense 3D scanner on July 29, 2014.
Using editing software, I “opened” up one side of the cellar to make it easier for researchers to view.
