Historical Museum — Heritage Site
The Brandy Station Foundation is an all-volunteer 501(c)-3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and historic resources of the Brandy Station area of Culpeper County, Virginia. While our focus is toward the Civil War history of the Brandy Station vicinity, our efforts are not limited to that time period or by any geographic boundaries. We have been instrumental in the preservation of significant tracts of land related to the Battle of Brandy Station (June 9, 1863) and Kelly’s Ford (March 17, 1863).
Our goal is to ensure the history and heritage of the area is not “paved over” in our rush to progress. The Brandy Station Foundation purchased and operates the Graffiti House, 19484 Brandy Rd., Brandy Station, which serves as the Battle of Brandy Station visitor center and as a museum. The Civil War Graffiti House is a two-story frame structure, believed to have been built in 1858. The walls of the second floor contain inscriptions, drawings, messages, and signatures of Civil War soldiers, hence the name “Graffiti House.”
The Graffiti House hours are Saturdays from 11AM-4PM through December 18, 2021 as well as by appointment.
As the Brandy Station Foundation is an all volunteer organization, please call the Graffiti House at 540-727-7718 to verify that we are open. Tours of the Brandy Station Battlefield with proceeds benefiting the Foundation may be scheduled all year round. Contact information and details including 2022 Graffiti House hours are on the Foundation website: brandystationfoundation.com
