Mount Vernon

Internship Experience: Mount Vernon

(The Columns) – Washington & Lee’s Anna Milewski ’18, has spent time in fields, labs, carpenter shops and seminar rooms – and it was all part of one internship at the home of George Washington.

Milewski’s daily routine included going into the archaeology lab at 8 a.m. and spending the day working on her project, which involved creating a rudimentary catalog of artifacts from a site known as the Carpenter’s Shop.

According to Milewski, “There was no truly average day at Mount Vernon, as there was always someone new stopping by the archaeology lab to either learn from the staff or share information that could help our work in archaeology.”
