Participants saw 63 species of birds throughout this 10-hour event, where participants stopped in for varying lengths of time. A big shout out to Loudoun Wildlife Volunteers, Bryan Henson and Allison Gallo, for braving the soaring temperatures to lead this program.

Morven Park has been chosen as one of just six sites in Virginia to host the Smithsonian exhibit Crossroads: Change in Rural America.

Sponsored by by the Virginia Association of Museums and Virginia Humanities, this exhibit explores the transformations that rural and small town communities (such as the ones in Loudoun) have experienced over the last century, and the forces that have shaped and reshaped rural American life.

Crossroads is a free exhibit—no ticket required. It's currently housed in Morven Park's Winmill Carriage Museum, and will remain there through June 6. You can see it Fridays through Mondays, from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

What do you get when you cross the in-depth engagement of a Morven Park civics lesson with the competitive excitement of March Madness? 10th graders at Stone Bridge High School found out this week when they played DocuMadness! This World History-based activity allows students to practice critical thinking, persuasion, and debate skills through the course of a March Madness-style bracket game. Starting with 16 famous historical documents, students must determine which is the most historically significant document and then use evidence (and plenty of confidence) to get their choice to the final round. This is a really fun lesson that gets students up on their feet and passionately participating in their history classrooms.

We had some guests at Corbell House (the headquarters for our Museum and Historic Preservation team) that were in need of rehoming. Thank you to the folks at Riverfox Farm who were able to come and safely remove the bees and will take them to live on their property.

It's always an exciting day at Morven Park!

Purchased by the Davises, these "throne chairs" are late 19th century reproductions made after an original 17th century Spanish design. A few years ago it was determined that conservation treatment would not only maintain the stability of the chairs but allow us to display them as they would have appeared to Westmoreland and Marguerite. Only two of the three chairs were conserved, the third is patiently waiting its turn.

It is through donations like yours that we are able to continue to care for and share our wonderful collection.

Our Story

COVID-19 Update:
The Pedestrian Entrance to the Park on Old Waterford Road is open daily from 9am-7pm.
We recognize being outdoors in nature is a great way to get much-needed fresh air and exercise and have decided to allow limited access to Park grounds in the interest of public health. Morven Park gates and parking lots will remain closed due to the fact that we cannot regulate the number of vehicles/people visiting the Park at any given time and need to remain in compliance with the federal directive to discourage crowds and large groups from gathering. Please note, all restrooms and Park buildings remain closed.

Morven Park, Loudoun County's most important community resource for current and future generations, has something for everyone! This 1,000-acre oasis in the heart of the county is home to the world-renowned Morven Park International Equestrian Center, the premier Morven Park Athletic Field Complex, the historic Davis Mansion, and the unique Winmill Carriage Museum. The picturesque grounds are open to the public every day, while the mansion and museum tour hours vary with the seasons. Tour schedules and a calendar of equestrian, athletic, and special events can be found at MorvenPark.org.

Many visitors believe that Morven Park is a city or county resource, but it is actually a nonprofit that relies on support from people like you to remain open to the public. Support the Park at MorvenPark.org/DonateNow.
