Inscription
Morven Park was the home of Westmoreland Davis, who as governor of Virginia (1918-1922) created the executive budget system that concentrated state budgeting authority in the governor's hands. Davis bought Morven Park in 1903 and transformed it into a progressive dairy farm. The first owner, Wilson Cary Selden, built a small fieldstone farmhouse in the 1780s. A mid-19th-century owner, Thomas Swann Jr. served as governor of Maryland and United States congressman. In the 1840s, the Baltimore architectural firm of Lind and Murdock enlarged and remodeled the house for Swann in the Greek Revival and Italian Villa styles.
