Memorial AreaIn the early 1930s, the Wakefield National Memorial Association created the buildings in the Memorial Area as part of the nation's commemoration of George Washington during the bicentennial of his birth. The Association constructed these buildings to be suggestive of a colonial farm complex, and did not construct them based on historical or archeological evidence of the buildings that existed here in the 1700s.
