Gunston Hall was once the center of a 5,500-acre tobacco and corn plantation. Its owner, George Mason IV (1725-1792), was a fourth generation Virginian who became a senior statesman and author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, Mason was among the first to call for such fundamental American liberties as religious toleration and freedom of the press.

Today, Gunston Hall is a National Historic Landmark owned by the Commonwealth of Virginia and administered by a Board of Regents appointed from The NSCDA. Mason’s home, constructed between 1755 and 1759, is an outstanding example of Georgian architecture.  Visitors receive a guided tour of the mansion with outbuildings, 550 acres of grounds and hiking trails to visit. A variety of onsite events are presented throughout the year. We offer classroom and group tours daily. Located just 24 miles south of Washington, DC in Lorton, Virginia.
