Long before Thoroughbred horses galloped across its wide expanse, The Meadow served as hunting grounds for the Youngtamund and Pamunkey tribes of the area. Its name dates back to a 1674 description of the land as ‘ye Great Meadow on the freshies of the Pamonkey” (the North Anna River). In the 1700s, the land formed part of the 10,000-acre North Wales Plantation in Caroline County. In 1805, Dr. Charles D. Morris purchased 4,000 acres, and The Meadow became a place in its own right and his family’s home for the next 100 years.
