Mason's Legacies Project

Who were the Masons of Virginia and how did they influence the world around them? The Mason’s Legacies Project encourages Honors College and History 300 students at George Mason University to better understand George Mason IV, his family, and their lasting legacies in the region. By selecting topics about the Mason family, or themes the family would have witnessed throughout their lifetime, students are helping to recreate George Mason’s world through primary source research and online exhibits. The result is an ongoing Omeka project featuring the contributions of students who take the History 300: Mason's Legacies course, which is taught regularly by Professor Oberle.
