Description

The John Singleton Mosby Foundation, Inc., was established by a group of Warrenton citizens to preserve the National Register of Historic Places property called Brentmoor. Since the house was once the home of Colonel John Singleton Mosby and the town formed part of "Mosby's Confederacy," these several community members believed that Brentmoor could become the home of a museum interpreting Mosby and Warrenton's Civil War experience. Founded in 1998, the John Singleton Mosby Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit membership association dedicated to the preservation of Brentmoor and the creation of the Mosby Museum.
