Our purpose is to inspire our guests to discover and embrace their role in advancing design for the public good — design that creates connections, improves lives, strengthens communities, and transforms the world we share for the better.
Our mission is to present The Branch House as the one place in Virginia — because of its location and evolving story — where everyone can begin exploring design for the public good.
Our vision is that with every visit, our guests leave with the inspiration, tools, and desire to advance design for the public good.
