Morven Park was once the home of Virginia governor, Westmoreland Davis, and his wife Marguerite. More than 70 years after his death, the accomplishments and ideals of Gov. Davis still resonate within the 1,000 acres of this one-of-a-kind place. Each year 150,000 people visit the Park, whether participating in its competitive equestrian events, touring its three museums, attending educational and recreational programs, or just enjoying the beauty of the woodlands, mountainous ridge, historic buildings, and formal gardens. Summer tour hours for Morven Park's three museums are Thursday, Friday,Saturday, and Monday 12p.m.-5p.m. and Sunday 12p.m-5p.m. Starting September 1st, the museums will be open to the public Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 - 5:00, with the last tour starting at 4:00 pm. The historic gardens, Turkey Hill Farm, hiking trails, equestrian center and athletic complex are open every day. Operated by the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, Morven Park is a non-profit organization, relying on individual donations, memberships, and event income to finance its public programs and preservation of its historic and natural resources.

Absolutely beautiful setting for a wedding, even down to the white horse carriage for the bride and groom. Walking around the property and visiting the governors mansion was a nice experience. Pictures turn out beautiful in the garden.

We really enjoyed our visit and tour of the building. When we first entered and waited for the tour, there's a few rooms to visit, focused on foxhunting. Once the tour started, we seemed to visit about every square foot of the house. The tour...More

We had a quick visit here on our way through Virginia and took some beautiful photos of the lovely house and gardens. We didn't pay to go inside the house so I couldn't comment on that.

If you like history and places like Mount Vernon, you will love Morven Park! Steeped in history, beautifully restored/maintained and lovely surrounding countryside! And if you get lucky there will be an equestrian event going on next door!
