Awesome! Interesting for Mom and Kids, Ages 5-12!

I was very interested in going here, but my kids went "kicking and screaming". They were sure that they wouldn't be interested, but the reverse was true! Tours are at the top of... read more

I recently attended a tour of the facility that was themed for the use of the house as a hospital during the civil war. Very interesting. The essences/smells that were placed in the rooms in an attempt to imitate the sickly infections and disease had a powerful impact.

I was very interested in going here, but my kids went "kicking and screaming". They were sure that they wouldn't be interested, but the reverse was true! Tours are at the top of every hour while they are open. Since we were the only ones that showed up for this tour, she told us that it could be as short... More

I was blown away by this place. Fantastic guide gave a thorough and detailed tour of the house. The rooms are made more realistic through the addition of 'scent' that complements the props. You are encouraged to ask questions and try things on, or pick up the props. Loved every minute of the one hour tour. I can not recommend... More

We just returned from an evening at Ben Lomond Manor House watching the sunset. Paige and her staff, including knowledgeable re-enactors, could not have been more gracious. We were drawn back into the 19th century with live music, delicious cold drinks, tasty food and tours of a special historical place. This is just one of several special events the Historic... More

I was the only one around on a gray, rainy day so the docent took his time on areas that particularly interested me. We turned the 45 minute tour into a 90 minute one. This plantation's place in history, as a Confederate field hospital, was fascinating. The home features graffiti left behind by soldiers - fascinating! Best $5 I've spent... More

My wife and I were passing through (mid-May) the area and wanted to stop to see the rose garden. There is a fine collection of vintage roses in a wonderful setting. We also took the house tour. The guide was knowledgeable, personable, and did a great job of giving us the history of Ben Lomond and its role in the... More

This is a must see when you are in the neighborhood. For a small fee you get a tour of the house and grounds. The writing on the walls upstairs from the many injured and sick soldiers that were housed there will give you chills.

Loved out quick tour of the house and grounds. Fascinating history to walk inside and see what a wonderful job they did setting up the scene for us to visualize what it was like when it was taken over as a field hospital. I took pictures of the small bedroom that the family chose to stay in while the War... More

Had a very informed tour guide take us on a tour of this home turned civil war hospital. Still has handwriting on the walls of civil war soldiers that stayed here. Five dollar admission.

I really enjoyed the tour of this wonderful piece of history in Manassas. I particularly liked the way it was set up as an old hospital. It was very interesting and it is well preserved. The staff is very knowledgeable.
