Pelham is one of the Mosby Heritage Area's most stylish Victorian homes. It was built by Colonel Richard H. Dulany as a wedding gift for his eldest child, Mary Carter Dulany, whose wedding was November 1, 1876. Mary was on honeymoon with her groom, an Irishman named Robert Neville, and they returned to find their new home, along with 500 acres, carved from the neighboring farm, Crednal, another Dulany-Carter property. Robert and Mary Neville named their new home Pelham, after Confederate Major John Pelham, who Mary became fond of during his visit to her home, Welbourne, when she was 13.
The program will begin at 2:00 pm in the Middleburg Academy Ball Room, 35321 Notre Dame Lane, Middleburg, VA, with a talk by Morven Park Director of Preservation and Education Jana Shafagoj.
