“Relatively new historic site”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My kids and I attend a church that has an annual service and picnic at this site. Unfortunately, this year we forgot about the 17 year cicadas that had recently hatched. Given that the earth at the site had not been developed within the past 17 years there were cicadas everywhere.

“Nice Local Historic House Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

For Rippon Lodge being nearly around-the-corner for me, I was thrilled when it finally opened up to the public. The house offers several neat little 'treats' that are not in your average house museum. The staff was friendly and knowledgable.

“Surprise historical home right in Woodbridge !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

OK, this is not "Mount Vernon" historical- for that, you'll have to go about ten miles north. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful old historical home with grounds to walk about and enjoy. Take two hours off and relax on this property. The guides do a nice job of explaining the full history of the home. Very moderate entrance fee. Convenient parking lot right near the home.
