PLEASE NOTE: On the ticket page, sponsor level totals show up next to the level. The dollar amount below is just the "sponsor price" per seated ticket. For example, the Purple Level sponsorship is $250 and the sponsor receives two "tickets". So the sponsor would select "2" tickets for the quantity at the $125 "price" for the full $250 sponsorship level. We know it's confusing, and we apologize in advance!

* Gunston Hall (1755-1759) is the architectural gem built for George Mason IV by English craftsmen William Buckland and William Bernard Sears. It is one of the most beautiful, unique homes built in colonial Virginia. After its completion in 1759, few changes were made. As a result, Gunston Hall remains as a vital example of the Georgian style. Using Sears' skill in carving and Buckland's designs derived in part from source books they produced eclectic interiors that illustrated the full spectrum of the English Rococo including a Central Passage with “French Modern” and Neoclassical elements, a porch in the “Gothik” style, and two public rooms-one in the “Chinese Taste” and the other containing elements of Palladianism. The sheer number of Mason pieces provides a vivid picture of what Gunston Hall looked like when the family lived there from 1759 to 1792.
