‪Not clearly marked. Didn't find it. Location on map was incorrect. Really wish we could have seen it.‬

‪There is an interesting story associated with this site.
Apparently, when Geo. Washington died in 1799, the entire country was in mourning for our initial President, and many mock "funerals" were held throughout the country. One of these was held in St. Marys, and the people participated by carrying (an empty) casket through the small town and burying it in a symbolic ceremony in what is now their historic district. The townsfolk also planted several oak trees and established a town water pump for general public usage. As the years went on the oak trees grew mighty, but eventually had to be cut down...the remaining stumps are huge.
One of the charming parts of the story is that the oak from this last oak tree was sent to our capitol, in order to be used in the creation of the replica of the ship, Old Ironsides.
So that same oak tree continues to serve its country to this day!‬

‪We decided to walk around St Marys after dinner. While walking around St Marys we visited the Washington Pump and Oak. It's located in the median of the road with historical marker providing the history of the Washington Pump and Oak.‬

‪I absolutely loved seeing this! Such an interesting piece of history! There is a huge oak tree trunk which I think is the Washington Oak, altho there is a monument close to it that says marks the spot. That tree must have been one majestic Oak, as the diameter of it is huge. Orange Hall is across the street , along with the beautiful First Presbyterian Church. You can sit and daydream of what it must have been like to see the flag draped casket carried up the street from the riverfront, representing George Washington, who was actually being buried at Mount Vernon at that time. If you like old seaport towns, it's worth your time. ‬

‪Just in front of St. Mary's visitor center, and in the middle of the main drag, there's a small grass island with the stump of a native live oak and wooden post, as well as a Masonic obelisk. These mark the city's respect for the founding father. We learned from our host on the historical tour that the aged oak was cut down and its lumber sent to restore the USS Constitution in the latter 20th century. At this crossroads you will also find the Orange House, one of the earliest antebellum mansions, complete with ghosts and columns, and the former customs house where Aaron Burr lived for five years after the infamous duel with Hamilton. Great story. ‬

‪Located across the street from the St.Marys welcome center, a stump is all that remains of an ancient live oak that was harvested to restore the USS Constitution. The water pump was the sole source of water in early St. Marys days.‬

‪I caught this "site" only because I bought the self-guided tour booklet at the welcome center and happened to read about it as I walked past! I like learning about snippets of history when visiting small towns.‬

‪We forget how absolutely revered George Washington was to the point that at his death ceremonial "burials" were held in many towns across the country. The fact that oak trees were planted (unfortunately none remain--except for one stump) in his memory highlight the love of his countrymen for their "father".
It is also interesting history in this day & age of turning on a tap and expecting water to flow you realize that in a town such as St Marys you had to go to one of the public wells & pump water for your household use.
An enjoyable little history lesson while wandering through St. M.‬

‪A little historical display showing the remnants of an oak planted as memorials at the death of George Washington. The pump was one of several used in the town. It's right in the middle of the street and if not for the plaque you'd probably not know it was there.‬

‪Just a spot to see a fairly unusual bit of history while touring the town. In middle of street - but not much traffic.‬
