I really think that this historic site could definitely use some marketing or better signage off of I 95 because for a historic site that is 10 minutes off of I 95 south of DC, I expected to see a fai... more »

Interesting place with lots of historical significance. Grounds are beautiful and the house is nicer than Mount Vernon though much smaller. My only issue is the heavy emphasis on slavery, as if it is the most important part of American history.
Gunston Hall was the home of George Mason. Located just south of George Washington's Mt. Vernon. This place is much quieter, less touristy home of one of the Founding Father. The garden behind the house needs little clean up but overall very well taken care of house from 18th Century.
Interesting history of George Mason. Tour guide was great! Grounds are beautiful.
Christmastide at Gunston Hall is something you and your family don't want to miss! One day a year George and Anne Mason open their home for Christmas festivities for kids and adults alike. Be sure to stop by the kitchens for samples of some amazing colonial desserts and foods! And if that doesn't fill you up the bake sale certainly will. There's even a "snowball "fight for the kids! The actors are superb and give you a wonderful educational experience without making you feel like you're in school. So grab the whole family and don't miss out on this wonderful Christmas experience

A stunning example of colonial architecture and craftsmanship. A must see historical site.
