George Washington Slept Here, and "Took the Waters", Too

Because our First President was a surveryor (someone who measures big tracts of land), he would ride his horsel all over the wilderness surrrounding his home in Virginia measuring land. When he happened on a place he liked, he would buy a parcel and
that's what he did in Berkeley Springs, and so did the man who hired him to survery his 5 million acres, Lord Fairfax.
