Rippon Lodge

Rippon Lodge is among the oldest known homes in Prince William County. It is built on land that was first settled in the 17th century.

The original portions of the house were built circa 1747 by Richard Blackburn, a carpenter from Ripon, England. By the time of his death 10 years later, he had acquired numerous land holdings throughout Prince William County.

His son Thomas Blackburn, a Revolutionary War veteran and local politician, inherited the house in 1757 and made the first major additions in 1800.

The present house is the work of Wade Ellis, who directed major additions in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The home is a mixture of original 18th century features and 20th-century Colonial Revival architecture. Prince William County purchased the property in 2000 and began extensive restorations.
