History

Gunston Hall, built ca. 1755-59, was the home of George Mason, founding father and principal author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights. His call for freedom of the press, tolerance of religion, and other individual rights inspired many seminal freedom documents worldwide, including the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Bill of Rights, and the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Georgian-style mansion features some of the finest 18th-century ornamental architecture in the country, with exquisite interiors largely designed by Mason’s indentured London carpenter William Buckland and intricately hand carved by William Bernard Sears.

    We LOVED Gunston Hall, and especially Nicole, our main contact there. We chose it because it had an indoor option in case of rain, but luckily were able to go with plan A and be outside overlooking the river and under the big tree near the house. Their team was wonderful - I loved that the chairs and tables and setup were included, that we had a shorter time option (5 hours was plenty for our small 68 person wedding!), and of course being able to have such a gorgeous backdrop for our ceremony and reception. Their vendor recommendations were so helpful, the getting ready rooms are perfect, and the location feels quiet and away from the sounds of highways and the city. Thank you, GH!

    A wonderful, historic and gracious location to have a wedding. Nothing disturbs your stay and you are in a very beautiful spot and in the richest tapestry of history in the country. Surrounded by nature, yet close at hand, Gunston Hall is a marvelous place for a wedding.

    I cannot say enough about this incredibly gorgeous location! What a work of architecture! And the grounds are equally as stunning. This is the perfect place for the classic, joyful, and romantic bride to tie the knot with her Prince Charming!

  • Catering by Seasons Wedding Caterers

    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!
