New Fox Hunting Museum Opens in Middleburg

By Betsy Burke Parker Special to the Fauquier Times Mar 12, 2024

Museum of Hounds and Hunting North America is expanding operations, adding a Middleburg location in addition to the original museum at Leesburg’s historic Morven Park.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is slated for Thursday, March 14.

The new Middleburg museum is at the historic Duffy House, built on the town’s Main Street in 1820. The Duffy House was the original location for the National Sporting Library, from 1954 to 1969.

The National Sporting Library is now two blocks west, adjacent to the Chronicle of the Horse magazine office.
