The house that was built for Thomson Francis Mason, is now open to the public. Thomson Francis Mason was the mayor of Alexandria, D.C. from 1827-30 and a grandson of George Mason, author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights. He used the federal period villa, which was built for him in 1825, as a summer retreat. The 19th century architectural gem is located near the main entrance to Huntley Meadows Park. Historic Huntley is on the National Register of Historic Places, the Virginia Landmarks Register and the Fairfax County Inventory of Historic Sites.
