I love visiting Morven Park, the staff there are incredibly friendly and professional. I always get something new from every visit. There are a lot of historical sites in the area but this one always stands out as the best to me.

a house filles with many interesting things. Not enough time to linger in each room (all stuffed with curious things that would be worth lingering over), but great stories from an interesting family

On this spacious plantation the imposing Morven house stands to remind you of what it was to be rich in the 1800's.

We had a Groupon - 4 adults for $20. At that rate the tour of the house was interesting. As stated on the website, the tour is more about the people who lived in the house (Westmoreland Davis, the 55th Governor of Virginia, and his wife Marguerite Inman Davis) rather than the house or its furnishings. However, since the Governor... More

This is an odd but welcoming place that is worth the stop if you are touring Leesburg and environs. The grounds are lovely if not outstanding, and the house is exceptionally well kept. But the story and furnishings are a bit random, the idiosyncrasies of early 20th century inherited money with an entertaining populist twist. You will not come away... More

I found this historical treasure because of groupon. I was visiting friends who had lived in Leesburg for years but never knew about this place. In addition to it's beautifully kept buildings and original furnishings it has elaborate grounds. There is also an extensive carriage collection on display. The tour and tourguide were very interesting and informative. Our visit to... More

Tour is 45 minutes and you learn about the history of the house and the reform governor of Virginia who lived here for 3 decades. Air conditioned. handicap parking very close to entrance. First floor is totally accessible, including the restroom which has its own fireplace! Interesting ornate... More

In beautiful horse country, it's hard to believe this is less than an hour from downtown DC. Magnificent country house and gardens. But it's the tour that takes the cake. The guide says at the beginning that she isn't going to talk about the items in the house, but the people who lived there. The focus is on early 1900's... More

If you like getting a glimpse of how a house looked when in use this one fits the bill. So wonderful that you can wander the rooms without ropes blocking things off. House is air conditioned and the tour is in small groups. You see 9 rooms with others open for optional self touring. Great surprise is this is where... More

I come for the Hound Show every year and am always impressed with the pleasantness of the house and grounds. The Museum of Hounds and Hunting was not charging an entry fee so I was able to see some great stuff including paintings of notable huntsman through the years. Between the art, artifacts, and getting to walk through the historic... More
