Abstract
It was the purpose of this study to develop a documented history of the structures of the Martha Washington Inn. The study also sought to answer specific questions posed by the Virginia Landmarks Commission and the management of the Martha Washington Inn concerning the construction, and the historical and architectural significance of the structures.

The history includes the purpose for which the buildings were constructed, how the buildings were utilized, and detailed architectural descriptions. The history was developed through examination of both primary and secondary sources. These sources included minutes of organizations personal journals, deeds, wills, genealogies, published memoirs, and a bill of work. The architectural descriptions were developed through readings in architectural history, historic photographs and illustrations, and direct observation.
