Clarke County has a rich history. The County was home to Lord Clarke, Revolutionary War General Daniel Morgan, and George Washington’s daughter Nellie Custis, and it was the birthplace of Robert E. Lee’s wife, Mary Anna Randolph Custis. Located 60 miles west of Washington, DC, Clarke County is an oasis of rolling hills set at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains and near the Shenandoah River. Clarke County, known for its many horse friendly properties, is a planned, open-space community that offers access to hiking on the Appalachian Trail, fishing and water sports, equestrian events, award-winning wineries, and a range of dining and entertainment experiences, including art shows, hot air balloon rides, and historic sites and museums. Clarke County, which encompasses Millwood, Berryville, Boyce, and White Post, provides many homes for sale with proximity to urban areas but the area also serves as a respite from city stress.
