Virginia Wine Festival
The Old Mansion
Constructed by Major Thomas Hoomes in the 1700’s, after having settled in Bowling Green in 1667, Old Mansion is said to be the oldest home still in existence in Caroline County. The length of lawn in front of the house or “bowling green” serves as the namesake for the Town and is surrounded by a circular driveway that was once a race track for some of America’s first thoroughbred horses.
The first Bowling on the Green Virginia Wine Festival in 2016 celebrated the historic home and its 128 acres as being the Commonwealth’s first historic property to receive perpetual protection under the authority of the Open-Space Land Act.
Today Old Mansion is privately owned and open to the public for Town-sponsored events.
