Brandy Station Foundation

A nonprofit organization

The Brandy Station Foundation owns and operates the Graffiti House in Brandy Station.  The Civil War-era Graffiti House is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The walls, primarily on the second floor, contain drawings, messages, and signatures of Civil War soldiers, both Union and Confederate, hence the name "Graffiti House." A museum is on the first floor of the building.  Your donations help to preserve the Graffiti House and keep it open for visitors. The Foundation is an all-volunteer 501(c)-3 non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and historic resources of the Brandy Station area of Culpeper County, Virginia.  Thanks for your support!!

More About Us

The Brandy Station Foundation has been instrumental in the preservation of significant tracts of land related to the Battle of Brandy Station (June 9, 1863) and Kelly's Ford (March 17, 1863). 

In 2002, the Brandy Station Foundation purchased the Graffiti House, a two-story structure located at 19484 Brandy Road in Brandy Station.  We are proud to be a foundation that promotes the Graffiti House as a neutral witness to history. Tours of the Graffiti House as well as Battle of Brandy Station battlefield tours are available thanks to volunteers.

The Brandy Station Foundation hosts numerous community events, both educational and entertaining. We host Civil War lectures, special Graffiti House tours for educators and other groups, and commemorative events like participation in the 160th anniversary of the Battle of Brandy Station in June 2023. The community also enjoys an annual "Spirits of the Graffiti House" event in October. On Park Days in the spring, Foundation and community members have helped us to beautify preserved battlefield land and the property around and across the road from the Graffiti House.

Again, thank you for your support of the Brandy Station Foundation!
