George Washington Bathtub Celebration

This weekend is devoted to celebrating Berkeley Springs’ absolutely exclusive attraction — George Washington’s bathtub! And the town goes all out making sure George’s face still means something. Both the bathtub and the celebration are firmly rooted in historic truth. On March 18, 1748, George Washington first visited “ye fam’d warm springs.” Several times over succeeding decades he returned to bathe, claiming the waters would make a cure for him. The actual tub? Well, like the unfounded report of a secret meeting between George Washington and St. Patrick…it may have a bit of spin about it.
Here are all the activities that George Washington would be happy to attend in his honor.
