A highly decorated public servant, Shouse founded Wolf Trap in 1966 when she was 71 years old. Wolf Trap’s first venue was Filene Center, and in 1981, she had two 18th century barns from Maine brought to Virginia, rebuilt them, keeping their rustic charm, and added first-rate acoustics and amenities to create The Barns at Wolf Trap. Wolf Trap is the only national park dedicated to presenting the performing arts.

The venue is the summer home of the Wolf Trap Orchestra, and from fall through spring, it presents more than 80 performances. The building is known for its stunning architecture, which is made of Douglas fir and yellow pine, and is specially designed for major outdoor music events. It features both lower and upper indoor seats with two opposite external bridges to the upper level, while its sloping grassy lawn gives patrons a great view of the performances.
