Morven Park is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is operated in the public interest by the Westmoreland Davis Memorial Foundation, Inc. Morven Park is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Virginia Historic Landmark.
Morven Park, located just outside Leesburg, Va., was once the home of Westmoreland Davis, governor of Virginia from 1918-1922. This 1,000-acre oasis in Northern Virginia attracts about 100,000 people each year, enticed by the site’s exquisite scenery, historic gardens, sports fields, museum collections, Civil War hut site, and hiking trails.

Owners of the Morven Park let hundreds of folks down. Major failure and puts a black mark on their leadership. They run a business that includes sports fields and cancelled a major sports tourney (lacrosse) as folks were arriving to the field after long drives and hotel stays. Sports like lacrosse are played in the rain. It was a misty day. Major failure on the Morven Park owners.
The park itself was beautiful but the staff were never around for the tour through tge museum. We visited the website for tour times and arrived in plenty of time to enjoy a short walk through the garden. Tried 3 different times to buy tickets for the tour, doors locked and staff not around. Saw saw beautiful countryside but the drive out was pretty wasted.
A beautiful home and important piece of Virginia history. Its amazing how many original pieces are still in the house. Very well maintained and a joy to visit. The grounds are truly stunning.
Went out for the annual rummage sale and was pleasantly surprised. The grounds were lovely, the facilities were well kept and the group running the rummage sale were awesome.
Check out the former governor's mansion and walk or ride the grounds. Beautiful park and well-maintained. Various events throughout the year.
