Long Branch Historic House and Farm is located on 400 acres in Boyce, Virginia, about one hour and a half from Washington, D.C. Our purpose is to preserve and utilize the assets of the Long Branch estate for the benefit of our local and regional communities. The circa 1811 historic house, horse retirement farm and scenic open spaces allow us to promote education and environmental preservation and to host community and private events. And our scenic Sheila McQueen Gardens are the perfect location for weddings and private events. Please feel free to visit the house, enjoy a picnic on our beautiful grounds and hike or walk our pristine property at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Robert Carter Burwell inherited the land sitting along a stream known as Long Branch in Clarke Country, Virginia.
Design and Construction Begin
Burwell, along with the help of a local builder-architect, designed and constructed the house following the classical principles suggested to him by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, architect of the U.S. Capitol, in a letter dated July 21, 1811.
