Gunston Hall


Gunston Hall's collection of objects tells the story of the Mason family and eighteenth-century life in colonial Virginia. Studying each piece and how the family used it provides an avenue for appreciating what was important to them. Considering where and when the piece was purchased informs our understanding of how the Masons wanted to be represented to others. Currently, the collection contains over fifty pieces owned by the Mason family in addition to a large collection of mid-to-late eighteenth century furnishings produced in England and the Chesapeake region.
