A museum interpreter guides tours through the Greek revival mansion, where chandeliers illuminate hardwood floors and finely woven rugs. Groups can marvel at a collection of 16th-century Flemish tapestries, art nouveau pieces, and displays that chronicle the life of former Virginia governor Westmoreland Davis, who called the mansion home during the early 1900s.
Next, guests travel to the other side of the grand lawn for a self-guided tour of the Winmill Carriage Museum. The museum showcases dozens of well-preserved carriages, including a hansom cab, similar to the carriages used in the Sherlock Holmes movies, and the Silsby steam pumper, which was one of the first carriages to use a rotary motor. See more details on the mansion and the museum here.

About The Davis Mansion at Morven Park
Driving through Morven Park's scenic entrance is like entering a living history book. The estate—which encompasses more than 1,000 acres of lawns, wooded areas, and boxwood gardens—has been host to some of the nation's most prominent public servants. In fact, the gates themselves were a gift from the citizens of Baltimore to former mayor Thomas Swann Jr., the estate's 19th-century owner. After passing the gate, the road winds around to a grand lawn and a mansion that dates back to 1781. As visitors walk through this lush estate, they'll see a Greek Revival portico that leads into a foyer awash with Flemish tapestries and ornately carved wood furnishings, where velvet-curtained doorways lead into a Renaissance great hall, a Jacobean dining room, and a French drawing room. Nearby, intricate displays highlight the life of Westmoreland Davis, the 55th governor of Virginia who lived in Morven Park during the early 20th century.
