Owner description: 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.

“Fine Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had a house tour for two with Ashley, a very knowledgeable and pleasant docent. She answered our many questions with high enthusiasm for Morven Park and its history, inhabitants, and the culture of the Leesburg area. Next visit we will plan on spending time in the park and gardens and enjoying the carriage house. Highly recommend this tour.

Lovely grounds and reasonably priced admission. The house is historic and worth a tour. The carriage museum was also fun.
