Overview
More
Ben Lomond and its outbuildings were constructed for Benjamin Tasker Chinn in 1832. Confederate forces used Ben Lomond as a hospital following the 1861 Battle of First Manassas. Signatures of Federal soldiers who occupied the property in 1862 are still visible inside the house. Tour the Civil War hospital, where you can see, smell, touch, hear, and taste history. Then see the restored slave quarter, smokehouse and dairy and enjoy the fragrant Rose Garden. The site is open for tours May-October. Grounds are open year round from dawn-dusk. Tours November-April are available with advanced notice.

Anyone who wants to learn more about the Civil War--in many capacities--should go here. In addition to some placards on the grounds (mostly about the slave kitchen and outdoor facilities), the tour guides will likely give you HEAPS of info: weapons used, the house itself...More

I had been by this home many times. I took a tour this time. My tour guide was Warrick, and he was very amazing and informative. It is a must see place. Sadly, it is not open during the cold months.

It was very interesting to see a beautiful plantation house set up as a battlefield hospital. Although a little gruesome, it gave a very clear picture on how these homes were transformed into surgeries and recovery rooms. Definitely worth a stop.
