Renovation and Construction

Between February 2019 and May 2019, the Visitor Center at Gunston Hall will be under renovation to enhance the experience for our visitors and continue the preservation of our collections. Over the course of the project, the building will be getting new windows and doors, a new roof, and many behind-the-scenes updates. This page is up-to-date with current progress and how the renovations will affect your visit.

The heating and cooling systems in the Mansion will be replaced beginning the end of January 2019.  This will take place in the Mansion and Kitchen Yard, changing access to both of those spaces.  The Kitchen Yard will remain fully open during the work.  At some points during this work, the Mansion will be closed to visitors for portions of the day.  Please call in advance of your visit to determine if the Mansion will be open for tours.

Sections of pipe for the Mansion water systems are being replaced, and there will be digging along the driveway.  This does not affect tours of the Mansion, but may impact hikes and strolls on the property.

Visitor Center
As of March 2019, major construction on the Visitor Center is complete.  We expect to install a new exhibition starting at the end of April 2019.  While the Visitor Center and gift shop remain open through this project, some portions of the building may not be accessible to guests until the exhibit opens in June 2019.
