History
This mansion's construction was completed in 1759. It was crafted for George Mason IV. This example of Georgian style has hardly changed over the years save for some modern updates to its antiquated systems. It was constructed by two Englishmen who brought over design and architecture elements popular in London at the time. A large number of Mason pieces still remain at the mansion, showcasing the lives of the family during their stay in the house from 1759 to 1792. The home stayed in the family until 1867.

    We can't say enough good things about working with Nicole and choosing Gunston Hall for our wedding. It was the best decision we made for our wedding. All of our guests thought the property was beautiful, and Nicole went above and beyond to help us. She met with us several times in the course of our engagement, helped us figure out the best place to hold the various parts of our day (we did both our ceremony and reception on site), was incredibly responsive via email, and helped with set-up and breakdown of our wedding. She was also incredibly sweet to our dog who served as the "Best Dog". Gunston Hall was the most perfect place for us and I am so happy to have these memories. One day, we hope to hold an anniversary party there and bring everyone back for another spectacular celebration!

    Being on the property is like stepping back in time. As you drive up the long, tall tree lined driveway, you can see the mansion in the distance as the perfect backdrop. Walking around the property and the gardens, you truly feel as though you are in a place of historic significance. The visitor center also has a quaint ballroom for use!
