Testimonial

“The Historic Blenheim is a remarkable venue that offers a unique, historical experience in a modern day setting. We hosted a client appreciation event at the Historic Blenheim and it was the perfect backdrop for a very elegant and interesting event. The incredible collection of civil war graffiti both delighted and awed our guests. The rooms came alive with military theories, war tactics and political view points from 150 years ago. We received rave reviews from our clients!” Kathy B.

Located at 3610 Old Lee Highway, Fairfax, VA 22030, the City of Fairfax offers this unique, historic facility that will help make your special event—wedding, anniversary party, bar/bat mitzvah—even more special. The Civil War Interpretive Center at Historic Blenheim has historic charm and presence while offering modern amenities for your event. Even something as seemingly pedestrian as a meeting becomes more distinct in this historic setting.
