The Westmoreland County Museum was established in 1941 and became the first museum to open regularly in the Northern Neck. The museum was built as a replica of Wakefield, the birthplace of George Washington to display the portrait of William Pitt (Lord Chatham) painted by Charles Willson Peale in 1768.
