Local Interests : Things to See and Do

Loudoun County Map January 2008

During your stay you can take part in the farm’s history. You can visit Loudoun’s many historic towns, its award-winning wineries, visit one of its many picturesque outdoor parks or even walk along the Appalachian trail. Afterwards, simply enjoy a relaxing afternoon or evening indoors in the completely restored farmhouse, with its mix of authentic 19th century decor and antiques. Whatever you choose, your will be revitalized by connecting to the past at this bucolic, historic farm.

Unison is one of Loudoun’s historic districts, and in any of these areas you can go antiquing, visit a winery, or find local artists and artisans and learn about their craft. Those who are interested in history can visit museums and learn about the areas’ past or, depending on the season, watch a re-enactment of the 1862 Battle of Unison or venture further to embrace all of Loudoun’s Civil War History.

Visit Manassas National Battlefield Park to explore the historic terrain where men fought and died more than a century ago during two battles near a little stream called Bull Run.
