Rippon Lodge Historic Site, a Nationally Registered Historic Location, serves as an inspirational spot for artists of all ages.

Built circa 1747 by English immigrant, Richard Blackburn, Rippon Lodge Historic Site transformed from a modest Colonial home into a grand estate over its 270+year history. Among its notable history, including visits by George Washington, artist Benjamin Latrobe, and Senator Taft, the last two owners were relatives of the original owner. Rippon Lodge has never failed to be a picturesque location, as it sits on top of a hill with stunning views of the Potomac River and Neabsco Creek, surrounded by lush landscaped grounds dotted with colorful gardens, historic sage trees and forest, and home to numerous species of birds and animals. Throughout the year, Rippon Lodge Historic Site offers public tours, special events, living history programs, and school tours. There are Eagle Scout and Girl Scout opportunities, luncheons, and other group related rentals. The grounds are available all year.
