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 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!

    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!
