Upper Wolfsnare

This original Georgian-style house reflects the gentry class life style of its builder, Thomas Walke III. His son, Thomas Walke IV, and subsequent owner, was one of the two local representatives to the Virginia Convention of 1788 which decided Virginia would ratify the recently drafted Constitution of the United States.

A visit to the house and grounds of Upper Wolfsnare will take you back in time to the day when the Walke family was in residence. The lane to the house is lined with crepe myrtles which help provide a feeling of the country life in colonial Virginia.  Trees, flowers and herbs of the house yard provide a pleasant setting for this impressive house.

Upper Wolfsnare is open to the Public on a limited basis on Wednesdays from Noon to 4 P.M. during July and August and for larger groups by appointment only.
