Hidden nearby gem - get to see wetlands, a nice 1 mile hike and an old quarry overseen by George Washington. Bird life you can see here is incredible.

History Museum
“Twenty minutes away, the Rising Sun Tavern Museum provides a lively interpretation of late 18th-century Tavern life. Charles Washington, George Washington's youngest brother, built this landmark in the 1760's as his private residence. After being sold outside the Washington family, the building was leased as a tavern in 1792. Operating as a stopover for travelers for 35 years in the bustling town of Fredericksburg, it was a popular diversion for travelers and locals alike. Today, costumed guides entertain visitors as though they have just stepped off their coaches into the late 18th-century life. See how bygone visitors slept, ate, drank and lived. No alcohol is served here.”
