This tree dubbed "America's Historic Horse-Chestnut Tree" in 1926, was the last of thirteen horse-chestnut Trees's planted by George Washington on Fauquier Street in downtown Fredericksburg Virginia.
The Taco, Georgia chapter of the The Daughters of the American Revolution placed a bronze plaque at the base of the tree in 1924, indicating that this tree was named by Washington for the Colony of Georgia.
Washington planted these trees to represent each of the thirteen colonies, and to provide shade for his mother, Mary and sister, Betty, as they walked to and from each other's homes a short distance away. In 2004 this national treasure finally succumbed to old age and had to be removed.
