I took some visiting family to this historic site that I had visited a few years ago. Lance was our guide, and he was terrific--great historic overview of the origins of the place, and the context of it's founding, and a great review of the Carter family in Virginia. The presentation of the house as it was during the Civil War, specifically around the First Battle of Manassas is very thorough. The slave quarters are also really well done, the interpretation engaging. There are "sensory" experiences involved, which make it different. Enjoy yourselves here if you love learning about American history.

This is a hidden gem for civil war enthusiasts. This is one of only a few historic places where you get to interact with the site to bring history to life.

Kevin did a great job of presenting the history of the house and it being taken over during the war as a hospital site. It’s not a big tour but informative and worth the visit.

We were recommended this house by our hosts at the Manassas Junction B&B, what a good choice.
Its only a small museum that was a field hospital during the civil war but there are numerous exhibits to see and touch.
We were the only people on the house tour and what was supposed to be a 50 minute tour turned into nearly two hours such was the knowledge and passion for the house demonstrated by our guide. Entrance fee was cheap.
A few ghostly stories always make a tour more enjoyable.
Would recommend if you have a couple of hours spare.

Despite living in this area for years we learned many new things about life in northern Virginia during our really enjoyable visit to Ben Lomond Historic Site. Kevin provided us a first-rate tour, bringing to life both the colonial and Civil War times this lovely home experienced in an engaging, lively way. The immersive experience inside the house really brings to life the Civil War period in a way that have few other homes we've toured. And don't miss the period graffiti left by soldiers - priceless! Tucked away behind the battlefield, this truly is a hidden historic gem!

This site was incredibly informative and not the usual plantation experience. It was not the"Scarlet O'Hara, Gone With the Wind over the top plantation. It was more an average house on an average size plantation; made of field stone with nothing too fancy. More typical of the style found in Virginia. What made this experience so unique and worth the visit was this house had been used as a hospital for the Manassas Battle (Bull Run) that occurred just down the road. The house here is preserved as it would have been as a hospital. There are the surgeon's instruments on the operating table and the recovery rooms are furnished as they would have been during the battle and its aftermath. There is a slave quarters building and other structures of the time as well. The curators have done an incredible job with smells and sounds of a Civil War era hospital incorporated into tour; they are extremely knowledgeable about the history of the house, and surrounding lands, and the living conditions of the slaves who were there. This attraction is well worth the visit. See this in conjunction with the Manassas National Battlefield Park less than two miles away.

I went to the Ben Lomond Historic Site because I heard about it at Manassas National Park and saw it on a Civil War Trust map. The grounds were nice and it was open, so I was able to do a tour. It was interesting to see Union troops engraved names still there and hearing about the aftermath of First Bull Run (aka Manassas). I recommend this place for Civil War buffs. it is open Wednesday-Sunday. Tour is only 5 dollars.

The grounds and garden are lovely and you can walk around reading the informative signs. But, it is rarely open. The one time it was open the costumed docent talked to us on the front steps but didn't let us inside.

My wife and I love to visit old antebellum plantation houses. Some resemble Tara and Twelve Oaks of Gone With The Wind vintage. Have you been to Natchez, Mississippi? Others resemble today's suburban ranch houses. Others are majestic by the standards of the day. Like Ben Lomond Plantation in Manassas, Virginia. Located at 10321 Sudley Manor Drive near historic Bull Run Creek, the two-story, five bay, red sandstone structure was built in 1837. It has a central-hall plan and a one-story frame kitchen addition, common in that era. The property also includes a meat house, dairy, slave quarters, two-story tenant's house, brick pump house and a bunkhouse. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a Virginia Landmark in 1980. The house is open to the public for tours as a Civil War-period historic house museum.
