On the day in 1799 that George Washington was buried at Mount Vernon, the residents of St. Marys marched a flag-draped coffin down Osborne Street with great pagentry and buried the coffin at the corner of Conyers and Osborne Street. To mark the burial spot, four oak trees were planted. The last of the oak trees, known as the Washington Oak, was cut down in 1990, and the stump survives. Part of the wood from the Washington Oak went into the hull restoration of the USS Constitution. Self-guided tours.
