Why do people love Westmoreland County and Colonial Beach?
Bounded on the north by the Potomac River and on the south by the Rappahannock River, Westmoreland County sits firmly on the Northern Neck Peninsula of eastern VA. This 236 square mile community with 250 miles of shoreline offers a pleasant mix of history, recreation and a friendly small-town feel. Residents of Westmoreland County escape the hustle and bustle of the city to the wide-open waters, rolling fields and vast forests. With 5,250 acres of pristine waterfront parks and nature preserves in the county, there are plenty of recreational opportunities and educational programs!
Westmoreland County’s rich history as the birthplace of George Washington and James Monroe as well as the home of the storied Lee family at Stratford Hall will interest any history buff! Richard Henry Lee’s Leedstown Resolves were signed by 115 patriots in Westmoreland County in 1766, which fanned the revolutionary flames that led to our Declaration of Independence. In more recent history, Alexander Graham Bell had a grand Victorian summer home on the Potomac which you can now visit as a B&B! If you’d like to learn more about the area, please feel free to contact us or stop in at our King George or Colonial Beach offices.
