This undated handout photo provided by Mount Vernon shows North Cove near the palladian window at George Washington's Mount Vernon, Va. estate. The keepers of Washington's Mount Vernon estate on Friday announced a major reinterpretation of the largest room in the Founding Father's riverfront mansion. For decades, interpreters showed the room to tourists as Washington's large dining room. Upon further review, historians at Mount Vernon have concluded that the room Washington referred to as the "new room" that was added at the start of the American Revolution was actually more of a multi-purpose salon to impress and entertain visitors. A yearlong reinterpretation of the New Room will be unveiled to the public on Saturday, with a more authentic paint scheme and dozens of artifacts that Washington himself kept in the room.
