Wordless Wednesday-A Classic Never Goes Out of Style

Rippon Lodge-Woodbridge VA

Rippon Lodge in Woodbridge VA was built around 1725 and still stands today.  Though it is not as grand as Mount Vernon Estate a few miles down the road, Rippon Lodge has a beautiful vantage point across Neabsco Creek and played a significant role in Virginia history.   Prince William County has owned an maintained the property since 2000 and it is open to the public on the weekends May through October.

Well now, that looks like an appropriate wordless Wednesday... its about real estate, isn't that what this site is all about?  Nice stately home too! 

 

Merry Christmas!

Rippon Lodge does have a beautiful site and the holiday tour was quite nice.

Cindy,

I see it's decked out in its holiday wreaths. Very beautiful example of the architecture of this period. :)

Cindy, Gorgeous house. Can't you just picture all the generations of children playing on the lawn.

It's hard to beat the big old plantation houses for sheer grandeur/majesty.

I love the architecture of homes back east, particularly those that have lots of outdoor living space. Nice to see that the county maintains it so the public can experience and appreciate it.

Hi Cindy! This is why I love Virginia. It's full of historic buildings and homes. We do not see homes like that one here. Have a Happy New Year Cindy!

Cindy - You are right about a classic!  This is such a beautiful stately home - I'm so glad someone preserved this part of history.  The little cabin is too cute!

Right on - very classy. It's like great woodwork - it is always in style.

Cindy:  Does the County allow this lodge to be rented out for events?  Looks like a perfect setting for a large gathering like a Christmas party or a wedding.

Beautiful, grand house. Nothing like that here in California.

That is a "stately" piece of eye candy!

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Beautiful post and what picture of a great landmark. It is hard to believe folks actually lived in these homes at one time uh. Merry Christmas Cindy and thanks for sharing.
