Historic Huntley Hosts Summer Social


Historic Huntley Hosts Summer Social

Celebrate the summer and revel in spectacular views of Hybla Valley and Huntley Meadows Park during a Summer Social at Historic Huntley, the Fairfax County Park Authority’s beautifully restored Federal period summer villa in Alexandria, Va. The event will be held Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Socialize with friends and family amid cool summer breezes. Make and fly your own kite, perfect your bilbo-catching (a cup-and-ball game), and play historic games.  Enjoy refreshments such as hand-cranked ice cream and fresh lemonade. There also will be tours of the historic house, museum exhibits, and family fun.  All activities and refreshments are included with the $8 entrance fee.

Historic Huntley is owned and operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority and is a part of Huntley Meadows Park.  This historic property was restored and opened to the public in 2012.  It is a stunning example of Federal period architecture and was once owned by Thomson Francis Mason, grandson of Founding Father George Mason.  Thomson Francis Mason built Huntley as a summer retreat from the city of Alexandria, where he worked as a lawyer and served as a mayor and federal judge.  Huntley later was transformed into a dairy farm by the Harrison family in the late 19th century.  Visitors at Historic Huntley hear captivating stories of power, home, and endurance.
