Long Branch is working to become the most accessible, engaging and cutting-edge historic home in America. We work tirelessly to bring history alive in order to add value to the lives of our neighbors, near and far. We invite you to our house and Virginia horse retirement farm to enjoy the rich history, marvelous gardens and breathtaking views.

In addition to the preservation of our 200-year-old historic home, we oversee a Virginia horse retirement farm of nearly 400 pristine, permanently preserved acres. Long Branch’s herd of retired horses is an important aspect of our overall operation and adds life, excitement and beauty to the farm which they call home. They are a living, vibrant reminder of our equine heritage. Our farm is an integral part of our story and is host to a wide variety of community events that celebrate the history, heritage, and lifestyle of Virginians living in the lower Shenandoah Valley.

In addition to being open for seasonal tours and programs, we offer local families the ideal Virginia wedding reception venue. The historic house is also open for private party rentals, community functions, meetings, and events that wish to take advantage of our spectacular setting and phenomenal architecture.

Consider Long Branch - its beauty and peacefulness; open to visitors year-round at no charge. To help maintain our educational, equine, and environmental preservation programs, please consider a tax-deductible donation today, call (540) 837-1856 for details.
