We are devastated by this fire and express our heartfelt sympathy for our tenant, part of our Long Branch family, for the loss of her beloved horse.  At the same time, we are deeply grateful for the health and safety of all the other horses here at Long Branch who were not affected by this tragedy and the fact that no humans were injured.  
Our stable was an architectural icon set on the most picturesque landscape that our entire community appreciated.  The massive outpouring of love and support from our friends and neighbors is absolutely inspiring. 

Join us in thanking the local and regional fire and rescue services for their prompt and professional response.
At this time Long Branch asks only for your patience and understanding as we work through this while investigations are underway.

Long Branch Historic House and Farm is a 1811 historic house located on 400 acres in Boyce, Virginia, about one hour and a half from the Washington, D.C. area.


Our purpose is to preserve and utilize the assets of the Long Branch estate for the benefit of our local and regional communities. The our historic house, horse retirement farm and scenic open spaces allow us to promote education and environmental preservation and to host community and private events. The house and grounds are open to the public,  and our scenic Sheila Maqueen 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!
