Learn More About Historic Blenheim

Historic Blenheim is a c.1859 central hall Greek Revival style brick farmhouse built by Albert Willcoxon just prior to the Civil War (1861 – 1865).  It is nationally significant for the voluminous quantity and quality of examples of Civil War graffiti. Historic Blenheim provides a historic backdrop for events of every kind, including corporate meetings and retreats, weddings, banquets, and formal affairs or casual gatherings such as parties.

Historic Blenheim House, c. 1859

In 2001 Historic Blenheim was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Adjacent to the house is the Civil War Interpretive Center, opened in 2008. The Center’s mission is to enhance the educational experience of the site for visitors. A gallery inside the Interpretive Center contains displays that place the Union soldiers who stayed at Blenheim within the larger framework of the American Civil War.

Since the second floor and the attic are not accessible by the public, the Center also hosts an exact replica of two-thirds of Blenheim’s attic with life-sized images of the inscriptions. Additional features include an assembly room for school groups, tour groups, lectures, and special programs, along with temporary exhibits that are displayed on the walls.

The centerpiece of Historic Blenheim event space is the award-winning Interpretive Center. The venue features a stunning glass-roofed Atrium Lobby, 900-square-foot Assembly Room with hardwood flooring, and glass walls throughout offering extensive views of our Civil-War-era house and grounds.

A Pergola Terrace and covered Veranda Porch offer options for outdoor café seating, and the adjacent grounds provide plentiful space for large outdoor tented functions. The spectacular vista includes lush lawns, shady trees, split-rail fences, meandering footpaths and historic buildings transporting the visitor back in time to the mid-1800s.
