  1. Finally....a good link from beatrice!
  2. What would George Washington be worth today if he was worth $525 million in 1797?
  3. Those are "updated" figures... i'm pretty sure they are adjusted to inflation and those 500 million are not the amount he held back then
  4. Wow! You did NOT just post this did you? :eek: :eek:

  5. George & Martha Washington had an estimated net worth of $530k at the time of his death. They were considered one of the richest couples in the US at that time.

    I knew them, they were actually cool people, not all stiff and straitlaced like you see them in movies and stuff... they had parties that wouldn't quit sometimes.. I wasn't into the chamber music so much but still it was fun.. it was cool hanging with rich people...
