Gunston Hall Empty Mansion Photo Contest

By Lacey Villiva
Education Manager

As our readers may be aware, we are currently in the process of replacing our 80+ year old slate roof with a more period appropriate cedar roof.  During this process all of the furnishings had to be removed for their protection, and as a result, we are currently allowing photography in the Mansion.  From August through September, we ran a photo contest, and received 118 submissions from 21 photographers.  It is our great pleasure to announce the winners of our Empty Mansion Photo Contest.

In third place, is a photo by Hannah Wheeler, titled "Past Perspective #5.

In second place, is a photo by Lillis Werder, titled "Golden Hour at Gunston Hall."

And in first place, is a photo by Lael Voeller, titled "Mansion After a Rainstorm."  Lael is a local resident, and recieved her prize here at Gunston early this week.

If you haven't already seen the rest of the photo collection, please check the pictures out on our website or Facebook page.
