Historic role (from the website): “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 house, where you can smell, touch, hear and taste history.  Then see the restored slave quarter, smokehouse and dairy and enjoy the fragrant Rose Garden.
