Long Branch Historic House and Farm is located on 400 acres in Boyce, Virginia, about an hour and half away 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 historic house, active Virginia horse retirement farm and scenic open space allow us to promote education, environmental preservation and host community and private events. Our scenic gardens are the perfect location for Virginia weddings, and the house is the ideal Virginia wedding venue during inclement weather. Whether touring the home, enjoying a picnic on our beautiful grounds, hiking or walking our pristine property at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you will be sure to want to visit again.
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.
