Located in Northamptonshire, England, Sulgrave Manor is rich in history as it’s the ancestral home of George Washington. Noting the importance of this extraordinary architectural gem, The Friends of Sulgrave Manor was established in 1978 as a non-profit organization with a mission to distribute information, and encourage support for this historic site.
In 1914, a British Peace Centenary Committee purchased Sulgrave Manor with the intention to foster “Transatlantic Goodwill between the British and the American people.” To this day, Sulgrave Manor continues to serve as a memorial to Anglo-American friendship. We can only hope that this legacy continues well into the future.
Designed by Boston Web Group, The Friends of Sulgrave Manor website outlines the rich and detailed history of the Manor, including the story of the Washingtons and the storied connection between the UK and the US. Visitors to the site find the information simply fascinating, yet few are aware of the Washington’s connection to Sulgrave Manor.
The Friends of Sulgrave Manor website does an outstanding job telling the story of the Sulgrave Manor property. But the group recently requested some updates be made to the site in terms of member accessibility. The final result is a far more modern looking site that includes a revamped password-protected member area.
Of utmost importance, not only for The Friends of Sulgrave Manor website, but for all non-profit organizations, is a way for users to make a donation. Boston Web Group added a donate button to the site, which now makes it easier than ever before for those wishing to make a donation to this historic and well-deserving organization.
