The Piedmont Driving Club held a pre-show clinic at Morven Park on Sat. Everyone had a great time at the new facilities. The footing was PERFECTION even after 10" of recent rain. Equestrian events manager, Laura Doyle, is always the most gracious, generous hostess. Driving there feels like going to a friend's place-a friend with unimagineably splendid rings! Driving a carriage there feels like taking a magic carpet ride.
I encourage everyone to do your horses and yourself a favor- COME TO MORVEN PARK!

Especially your Holiday Cards! They are saying this year is going to be a big year for holiday cards and both printers and the post office could be busy if you wait until the last minute. #PlanningMakesPerfect #planningawedding

#DidYouKnow that osage trees were popular for use in hedgerows? Westmoreland Davis had them planted all over Morven Park. These trees are easiest to spot in fall when the bright green osage oranges are falling. Come out and enjoy the fall colors this weekend! While you are here, #TakeATour of the Davis Mansion.

On this #MuseumMonday that also happens to be the day after Halloween, we'll address one of the most frequently asked questions heard during tours--- “Is the mansion haunted?” 👻

While we love a good ghost story, the Morven Park team has never found evidence of ghosts in the mansion. However, since Loudoun County did not have its first hospital until 1912, births, illnesses, and death all occurred at home. The families residing at Morven Park during the 19th century had their fair share of sorrows, with both the unexpected deaths of children following illnesses and the expected passing of elderly family members. Their headstones can be found in the cemeteries of Leesburg, Alexandria, and Baltimore.

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.
