Historical archaeologist Philip Levy of the University of South Florida made the announcement of the discovery this week, stating that the team of archaeologists have found evidence that George Washington lived here from the age of 6 to 20.

The boyhood home of George Washington was an eight-room, clapboard-covered, shingle-roofed, wooden home that was over one-story tall. It also had stone cellars

The team has been working for a long time on the site, excavating and gathering up all kinds of artifacts from the spot.

The location of the home on Ferry Farm, is the house where his father moved the family to in 1738.

Many believe this discovery will help educate us further about the early years of George Washington.
