George Washington’s Bathtub Celebration
Friday through Sunday, March 15-17, 2019
BERKELEY SPRINGS, WV —– Berkeley Springs celebrates its most unique historical site, George Washington’s Bathtub, with a weekend devoted to dollar sales, local history and music. From Friday through Sunday, March 15-17, the tiny spa town highlights the country’s only outdoor monument to presidential bathing. The stone tub located in Berkeley Springs State Park was recently named one of the world’s six most breathtaking baths by Smithsonian Magazine.
The season’s opening of the Museum of the Berkeley Springs has been postponed this year to April 13. Renovations to the Museum are still on going so we look forward to a fresh new look in April.
George’s actual bathtub is still open and you can still dip in your toes to celebrate the anniversary of Washington’s first visit to the springs in 1748 when he was a 16-year-old surveyor’s assistant.
Because St Patrick’s day usually falls on the same weekend you will still find lots of music and activities for the weekend.
For all the details of Washington Bathtub weekend specials, call 1-800-447-8797. George Washington’s Bathtub Celebration is produced by Travel Berkeley Springs.
