Mount Vernon Mansion replicas are faithful copies or buildings inspired by Mount Vernon, the mansion of U.S. President George Washington in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. Such buildings usually feature Mount Vernon's iconic piazza but might also copy its cupola, distinct dimensions, red-white-and-green color scheme, asymmetrical window distribution, or three-part organization.
George Washington's Mount Vernon and architectural historian Lydia Mattice Brandt began a digital humanities project that collects information on Mount Vernon replicas. It crowd-sources information and locates Mount Vernon look-alikes on an interactive map.
Full-sized replicas of the Mount Vernon mansion were built for six international expositions:
- 1893 - Virginia State Building, World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, Illinois. Demolished.
- 1915 - Virginia State Building, Panama-Pacific Exposition, San Francisco, California. Demolished.

- 1932 - New York George Washington Bicentennial Commission Building, Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York City, Charles K. Bryant, architect. Demolished.
