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.

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!

The tour of the Davis Mansion and the carriage museum at Morven Park is well worth the visit. If you are anywhere near Leesburg, do yourself a favor and check it out. The price makes it a super value and the tour guides are outstanding!

Visited the home, carriage museum, gardens, and grounds over the weekend. The house is interesting and very well preserved. The tour focuses on the 1900s resident, a VA governor, but the earlier history of the house, dating back to the 1700s, is less emphasized. The...More

While on a quick family visit in Leesburg this weekend, we went to the Park twice. Once was a "check it out" drive through. The second time was an early morning long walk prompted by how interesting the park appear to be. No regrets whatsoever...More

Yes! Morven Park is a very popular dog walking destination. Park policy asks that you keep your dog on leash at all times and that you pick-up and dispose of any waste. We hope you and your dog enjoy the Park! ~Morven Park... More
