Never heard of Gari Melchers? Don't worry. You're not alone. Gari was a little known, but believe it or not famous artist, who found a home in Falmouth, Virginia.
This 27 acre estate was left to the commonwealth of Virginia by Gari's widow, as a tribute to his work
The house at Gari Melchers Home and Studio has a rich history that precedes Gari Melchers..
It has been told that the original deed of ownership is lost, the year in which the Georgian-style frame house was built and the identity of its first owner is not precisely known.
The home dates back to the 1790s. Since surviving documents state that the Horner and Voss families owned the property between 1785 and 1804, one of those two families must have been responsible for the earliest section of the current structure.
