Surrounding Area


The town of Warrenton is known for its colorful history, horse shows, Main Street charm and gracious way of life. During the Civil War, the town was near the scene of battles and skirmishes during which the churches and schools were used as hospitals. Even the Black Horse inn was used as a hospital during this time and also served as the courthouse for Fauquier County when the original burned down during the Civil War. Frequently occupied by Federal Troops, Warrenton was the object of raids by Col. John Mosby known as the "Gray Ghost'" who later made his home there and practiced law. A monument to Mosby stands beside the Old Courthouse. He is buried in the Warrenton Cemetery.

After the Civil War, Warrenton became a mecca for horse lovers. In 1883 the Warrenton Hunt was established and in 1900 the Warrenton Horse Show, which has achieved fame as the "Hunter Show of America," began. In 1922 the first Virginia Gold Cup Race was run. Other hunts, such as the Cassanova and the Old Dominion, are located within a few miles of town.

The quaintness, tradition and charm of bygone eras are apparent along Old Town Warrenton streets lined with historic houses and brick sidewalks. Townsfolk gather on the steps of the post office or at a coffee shop to pass the time of day, perhaps pausing to listen as the old courthouse clock strikes the hour. A blend of old and new businesses offer antiques, furniture, rugs, toys, books, artwork, clothing, jewelry, equestrian supplies and gifts. Specialty shops and a variety of fine restaurants satisfy the most discriminating palates. A thriving farmer's market offers home grown vegetables, preserves, baked goods, flowers and crafts. Located at 5th and Lee Streets, one block off Main Street, the market is open Wednesday and Saturday mornings from April through November.

Vineyards & Wineries
There are over 50 farm wineries tucked away in valleys or nestled on the slopes of Virginia's rolling hills. Virginia ranks seventh nationally among commercial wine producing states behind California, New York, Oregon, Washington, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Virginia's wine tradition dates back to 1609 when Jamestown settlers fermented native American grapes and made the first wine in the New world. However, it was Thomas Jefferson, Virginia's original wine pioneer, whose travels as ambassador to France led him to recognize the similarity of Virginia's soil and climate to the great winemaking regions of Europe. Most recently, Virginia was named as the "nation's most promising emerging wine region" by the Wine Spectator. Virginia Wines consistently grab the national and international spotlight from their competitors.

Wine tours are featured in the Virginia Wineries Festival and Tour guide. The guide includes detailed regional maps that make it easy to locate not only individual wineries, but also to plan trips which will include several wineries in close proximity, such as those prominently featured in the Blue Ridge Wine Way. The guide also lists numerous wine festivals and special events which feature craft shows, live bands, grape stomping and more.
