Bloomsbury Farm, registered on the National Register of Historic Places, has been a site of significant historic importance on a number of levels. It’s importance in the local agricultural/dairy architecture and industry is well-documented. Also known as The Harris Farm, this property was the “hub” of action seen during “The Battle of Harris Farm” on May 19, 1864; the house serving as the field hospital for the battle. The house is one of only several remaining examples of 18th C. architecture remaining in Spotsylvania County. Please visit our national register web gallery for extensive information related to the history of this property.
Some of the many features to be found on this property include: original 18th C. home with subsequent additions (most original woodwork and hardware remain in the home) consisting of 4BR, 2BA, Huge Kitchen, Formal Living and Dining Rooms, Separate Canning/Summer Kitchen, walk-up attic, and more; 2-Car Detached Garage; Huge Dairy Barn; Milk House; Pump House; Calving Stalls; Equipment Shed; Early Tenant House; & a number of other outbuildings. Situated on 2.5+/- acres, there is plenty of room for the horse enthusiast, gardener, &/or historic preservation minded. Home is livable but, as with most homes of this age, is in need of updating and renovation. Historic restoration tax credits may be available for the new owner.
