Facts About Historic Huntley Plantation

  • Huntley is a 19th-century Federal-style villa and farm in the Hybla Valley area of Fairfax County

  • It was the country home of Thomson Francis Mason, the mayor of Alexandria from 1827-30 and the grandson of George Mason IV, author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights.
  • The house and its outbuildings (a domed ice house, large necessary, and tenant house) are situated on 2.75 acres adjacent to Mount Vernon owned by George Mason.
  • The mansion was originally built in the shape of an “H” with the central section rising three stories on the south and two on the north.
  • For some unknown reasons, the east and the west sides of the mansion were built first and then joined in the center.
  • Historic Huntley has served many owners in different capacities over the years. It has been used as a summer retreat, grain farm, encampment for Civil War troops, and eventually a daily farm.
  • The property is now owned by the Fairfax County Authority and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
  • The buildings on site are open for rentals, scheduled tours and programs, and Saturday tours between the months of April through October.
