Welcome to Morven Park, a distinguished 200-year-old estate steeped in rich history and natural beauty. Owned and operated by the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, a dedicated private non-profit organization, Morven Park first welcomed the public in 1967. The estate was the residence of Westmoreland Davis, Governor of Virginia during World War I, and his wife Marguerite Inman Davis from 1903 to 1942. 

Spanning over 1,000 acres, Morven Park offers an array of attractions for visitors to enjoy. The estate features three meticulously curated museums, stunning gardens that change with the seasons, several serene walking trails, and a renowned equestrian center that hosts various events throughout the year. 

The gatehouse, constructed in 1901, is one of several charming staff residences built on the property in the early 20th century. This historic building now houses the administrative offices of the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy, continuing the estate's legacy of community involvement and environmental stewardship.
