Looking for something to do with your family on Grandparents Day this Sunday? Look no further than Morven Park for a fun, family activity included in the price of admission. Before or after your tour of the Davis Mansion, work as a team to explore the tenants of architecture and building materials used in the mansion by reconstructing your ideal log cabin and a cardboard ‘brick’ house. Then put your design to the test- can it withstand a collision with a speeding toy car or a dodgeball? This activity, set up in both the Davis Mansion and the Winmill Carriage Museum, is sure to please the young and the young at heart. We hope to see you out at the Park!

Weddings - Morven Park

Diamonds may be forever but that does not mean you like them. Brides to be are now choosing sapphires and other gems for their engagement rings. If you are going to go that route talk to your jeweler about the strength of the stone, and talk to your beloved BEFORE they buy a ring. #WeddingWednesday

On this day in 1859, Westmoreland "Morley" Davis was born. He was born on a boat in the Atlantic Ocean while his parents were returning from their annual summer holiday in Europe. After his father and two older siblings died, his mother moved to Virginia in 1860. In August of 1892 he married Marguerite Inman in London, England. In 1903, they purchased Morven Park, in Leesburg, VA. Davis served as Governor of Virginia from February 1918 - February 1922, and presided over the state's participation in World War I during his first year in office and over the creation of a network of state highways during the second half of his administration. Davis died on September 2, 1942, in a Baltimore hospital after suffering a stroke and was buried at Morven Park.
