HISTORICAL SITE DETAILS

Gunston Hall

Mason Neck, Virginia

Gunston Hall, completed in 1759, was the plantation residence of George Mason. Mason was a partner in the Ohio Company, an organization that invested in land in the Ohio River Valley. He served as treasurer of the company during the French and Indian War, during which he also represented his county in the Virginia House of Burgesses. Mason was also very active politically before, during and after the American Revolution. The French Declaration of the Rights of Man was based heavily on Mason's Virginia Declaration of Rights. Today, visitors to Gunston Hall can tour Mason's house, a wonderful example of colonial Georgian-era architecture, as well as extensive grounds, including a formal garden housing a 250-year-old boxwood allee.
