The old mansion has undergone major construction phases resulting in a confluence of different architectural styles. Features of the mansion suggest Greek Revival, while others point to a New Orleans style which was likely informed by Rezin Shepherd's years there as a successful businessman. Under Edwin Jarrett, an engineer known for his work on the Holland Tunnel in New York, the mansion underwent Colonial Revival addiitons in the early 20th century.
Signiifcant outbuildings include a cut stone spring house built in the style of a Greek temple, a stone smoke/meat house, a stone and frame carriage shed and a brick ice house.
The originial barn, constructed circa 1840, is a Pennsylvania bank barn which is typical of the Pennsylvania, Maryland, eastern West Virginia, and northern Virginia regions. In recent years, it was renovated to include a 3250 square foot open beamed space which is used to celebrate special oocasions. Extra Perks:
Wild Goose is particularly well suited for a unique "DIY" experience - we'll provide beautiful sunrises, the song of the wind, and still nights under a canopy of stars. You provide the rest! Whether it is a tender duet of committment, the
sturm und drang of a business venture, a thought provoking art installation or a playful sequence of vinyasa movements, we encourage you to bring your creativity. Be inspired!
