This year, Belvedere Plantation is celebrating 35 years of Fall fun!
Built in the 1760s, Belvedere Plantation has an incredibly rich history. George Washington and his wife, Martha, once dined at the farm as guests of Belvedere Plantation’s founder, Colonel William Dangerfield. The farm changed hands over time and the Fulks family moved to Belvedere Plantation in 1972. The family raised beef cattle and grew hay for feed. Eventually, the cattle were sold and crops such as corn, wheat and soybeans replaced the hay.
In 1983, the Fulks family held their very first Fall festival. The old hay barn became the Fun Barn, complete with its iconic grin, at the time of the farm’s first Great Pumpkin Patch! Over the years, the farm’s annual Fall festival grew and attractions such as the Pumpkin Mountain Slide, the amazingly fun barrel train and jumping pillows were added. Complete with a corn maze, amazing eats and 30+ attractions, Belvedere Plantation has become an annual tradition for families in and near Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Head out to the farm this Fall and help us celebrate!
