It was so sad to see such a beautiful property closed up. It sat so lonely on the beautiful, although unkempt grounds. The town should really step up to take care of this property.

Due to issues that only the town can resolve, the museum is closed to visitors and can't be viewed. Hopefully soon, something will be decided on the fate of this lovely home with so much land right in the town of Warrenton!

The infamous Civil War Calvary leader Col John Mosby only lived in this home for a short time later in life when he practiced law. Docent led tour of restored home and artifacts.
