Discovery Day at Huntley

Saturday, April 14, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Historic Huntley

$5 suggested donation

Come to Historic Huntley and discover this beautiful 19th-century villa and how it has changed over the 193 years of its history.

Learn about its federal-period architecture and service as a country retreat for the wealthy Alexandria mayor who built it; the transformation and long-time utilization as a year- round, dairy farming residence for the Harrison family; and the post-WWII commuter home it became for Colonel Ransom G. Amlong, his wife, and their six children.

Look out for Jon Vrana, historical reenactor, and representatives from George Mason’s Gunston Hall, the Fairfax County Historic Courthouse, and Friends of Fairfax Archaeology.

For this family-oriented event, come prepared to sleuth through

Huntley photos, maps, and artifacts; tour the house; participate in old-time activities such as ice cream- and butter-making; and snap a selfie or Facebook pic with Huntley the Cow. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate spring in historic style!
