In 1985, Steve and Kathi Walker purchased this
grand colonial revival residence to create Culpeper's first bed and breakfast -
Fountain Hall. Fountain Hall is built on land with an interesting history.
The house is a unique blend of old style charm, superb architectural features
and handcrafted woodwork with modern day amenities.
Fountain Hall is located on part of a large
land tract originally owned by Virginia's Royal Governor, Sir Alexander Spotswood.
The house began in 1859 as a simple country Victorian, named for Fountain Fisher
Henry, a land developer of South East Street. The house withstood the devastation
of the Civil War with battles fought in the town and county of Culpeper.
In 1923, Jackson Lee Fray, a prominent businessman, bought the house and worked with
a Philadelphia architect to construct the existing Colonial Revival house
from the original one. A portion of the original
structure remains intact at the rear of the property.
The B&B boasts ten-foot ceilings, a sweeping
walnut staircase, three large common rooms and six tastefully appointed
guest rooms. Each of the guest rooms has a private bath, air conditioning and fresh
air windows. Some rooms offer private porches with views, whirlpool tub, or two-room
suites. The grounds are meticulously maintained with seasonal flowers, mature
trees, plush green lawn and brick herringbone walkways.
