Inscription
One mile northwest stands Welbourne (ca. 1770), which has housed members of the same family since the 1830s. It is a significant example of a late-18th-century stone farmhouse that evolved into an imposing mansion. Welbourne was the home of Col. Richard H. Dulany, C.S.A., who founded the nation's oldest foxhunting club (Piedmont) in 1840, and the oldest horse show (Upperville) in 1853. Visitors during the Civil War included Stuart and Mosby. In the 1930s F. Scott Fitzgerald and Thomas Wolfe stayed at Welbourne. Each writer published a story using the house as a setting.
