AGRITOURISM AND EVENTS VENUE
Elegance, tradition, authenticity, respect for the environment, and history...
A 65-acre working farm, historic Belvidere is situated on the battlefield where the Battle of Piedmont was fought in 1864 during the Civil War. It was occupied by both sides during the battle and served as both a Confederate field hospital, and as a headquarters for the Union commander during the battle, with hundreds of Union troops bivouacked in the front yard.
The local Staunton, Virginia archives record that 2nd Lt. William McKinley, later President of the United States, took a bribe to spare the barn from pillage during the Shenandoah Valley Campaign. The McCue family founded the farm in the 1830s and lived there for five generations until it was purchased in 2009 by the Meyer Family and lovingly restored.
