The Inn at Warner Hall Aims To Unite Descendants Of Warner, Lewis, Washington Families

Descendants of the Warner, Lewis and Washington families are invited to visit Warner Hall to connect more deeply to their historical roots during this special family reunion promotion.

The Inn at Warner Hall will host a family reunion of sorts through October 2015 and all Warner, Lewis and Washington descendants are invited.

To help celebrate the legacy their ancestors, descendants are invited to the Inn at Warner Hall’s “All In The Family” reunion, a promotion to help get as many descendants to visit the property as possibly, likely uniting cousins who have never met.

The family reunion discount (25 percent lodging discount with a two night minimum) will be offered now through October 29.

To qualify for the discount, descendants will be required to book online and mention the code “All In The Family.” Upon arrival, descendants will also be asked to verify and share a copy of their family tree for Warner Hall archival purposes.  At the conclusion of the special offer, the Inn at Warner Hall will make a $10 donation to the Warner Hall Graveyard Preservation Fund (administered through the Gloucester Community Foundation) for each room night spent during the time period.

Some of the most recognized names in American history are direct descendants of Warner Hall’s founder, Augustine Warner – George Washington, the first president of the United States, Robert E. Lee, the most famous Civil War General and Captain Meriwether Lewis, renowned American explorer of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

George Washington was a frequent visitor to his grandparent’s plantation.

Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch of England, is also a direct descendent of Augustine Warner. In England, Warner Hall is referred to as “the home of the Queen’s American ancestors.”

Guests can stay in one of Warner Hall’s 11 rooms. Rooms assume double occupancy, full breakfast and complimentary snacks each day.

Contact Warner Hall to reserve space at 800.331.2720 or info@warnerhall.com. Make reservations online at www.warnerhall.com.

ABOUT THE INN AT WARNER HALL

Ideally situated at the head of the Severn River in Gloucester County, the manor house at Warner Hall stands on a neck of land occupied and built upon continually from the mid-17th century. The original six hundred-acre plantation site was established by Augustine Warner as a “land grant” from the British Crown. Augustine Warner received the acreage in exchange for bringing twelve settlers across the Atlantic Ocean to the Jamestown Settlement.

The two families associated with the property from this early period until well into the 19th century, the Warners and the Lewises, were among the most prominent families in Colonial Virginia. Some of the most recognized names in American history are direct descendants of Augustine Warner – George Washington, the first president of the United States, Robert E. Lee, the most famous Civil War General and Captain Meriwether Lewis, renowned American explorer of the Lewis & Clark expedition.

Queen Elizabeth II, the current monarch of England, is a direct descendent of Augustine Warner through the Bowes-Lyon family and the Earl of Strathmore. In England, Warner Hall is referred to as “The home of the Queen’s American ancestors.”

For Theresa and Troy Stevens, the current stewards of Warner Hall and the Inn’s owners, Warner Hall is a dream come true. Their passion for hospitality and historic preservation led them to Warner Hall where they saw the perfect opportunity to use their financial management and marketing skills to preserve an historical property and pursue their real passion – making people happy.
