Carter Hall and the Burwell-Morgan Mill:
Life in Colonial Virginia

Visit several historic treasures in charming Clarke County, learn from experts about life in the colonial and pre-Civil War eras at a working mill, and dine outdoors in a beautiful park-like setting at a catered lunch in Millwood.

You’ll arrive in the afternoon for a brief walking tour of the Carter Hall estate. You’ll be served a chef-prepared dinner in majestic Carter Hall, followed by a talk and discussion of colonial life in Clarke County. After breakfast in the morning, we’ll walk or drive to the small hamlet of Millwood, Virginia for some antiquing or village walks. We’ll enjoy a catered picnic lunch near the mill stream, including a tour of the charming art show in the restored Burwell Morgan Mill. We’ll return to Carter Hall for tea, and say our goodbyes to our fellow travelers before departing for home.
