Morven Park

Morven Park

Known as the “Central Park” of Loudoun County, Morven Park is a historic 200-year-old estate that first opened to the public in 1967 and welcomes over 200,000 visitors each year who come to enjoy exquisite scenery, formal boxwood gardens, the Morven Park International Equestrian Center, the iconic Greek Revival mansion, museums, and hiking trails. The Park grounds are open daily and are free to enjoy. The Park’s museums are open seasonally and require advance ticket purchase.

One ticket provides visitors a tour of the Davis Mansion, the Museums of Hounds & Hunting of North America, and the Winmill Carriage Museum. Guests touring the mansion will hear stories of the civic and social lives of former Virginia Governor Westmoreland Davis and his wife, Marguerite, during the first half of the 20th century. The Davises’ personal items and extensive collection of arts and antiques acquired during their travels throughout the world are on display as guests pass through living areas that include a lavish entry hall, ornate drawing room, elaborate dining area, grand billiard room, and well-stocked library, as well as an expansive kitchen and charming personal quarters.

Morven Park is proud to have been selected as a recipient of the Crossroads Exhibit, which will be on display in the Winmill Carriage Museum. In addition to the exhibit, the carriage museum features a unique collection of 40 antique coaches, carriages, sleds, and carts ranging from utilitarian to regal.

Tickets and tour information can be found on our website.
