The Cornwell Farm residence in Great Falls has survived as a well-preserved example of Northern Virginia antebellum plantation architecture. The property was accepted into the National Register of Historic Places on April 13, 1977. It is one of the area’s most significant residential properties with a Nineteenth Century Manor House, circa 1831. It is scenically important in that it is the major architectural element to be seen along the historic Georgetown Pike, the first road in the state to be designated a Virginia By-Way. The entry features a cedar tree-lined private drive arriving at a pea gravel motor court. The gently rolling land and country vistas are some of the most gorgeous this close to Washington, D.C. The property features a 4--stall barn, fenced and cross-fenced pasture land and run-in shed for horses.
Proceeds from the day support the LiftMeUp! Therapeutic Riding Program. LiftMeUp! is a therapeutic horseback riding program that is dedicated to providing safe and effective instruction to children and adults with a variety of disabilities. The money raised will help maintain and improve the facilities and grounds to ensure a comfortable and safe place for the riders and horses.
"Good fences make good neighbors, we need good neighbors to help us build good fences to keep our horses safe and out of our neighbors' yards. A section of fence--or even an entire field, can be purchased in honor of a loved one, human or equine and your donations are tax deductible. I am so grateful to Karen Briscoe for organizing this wonderful community event for Lift Me Up!"—said Laura Smith.
