Civil War Memories Are Just Steps From Warren County Homes

Visit the Warren Heritage Society and walk through halls of the first known Warren County homes. Properties which sit on this idyllic piece of Front Royal real estate are filled with historic memories and memorabilia featuring the Civil War.

The Ivy Lodge was once a day school for young girls featuring lessons in decorum and academics. A dedicated Southern patriot, the school’s founder Miss Mary Simpson lost two brothers to the cause. The Warren Heritage town and county museum is set up within the Ivy Lodge detailing a progressive timeline of the community. There is also a gift store filled with unique items including replicas of historic maps detailing Warren County homes.

Belle Boyd’s Cottage stands proudly close by honoring its infamous inhabitant. This local lady was a documented Confederate spy who snuck from her home and made her way across current Front Royal real estate to relay information to General Jackson. Often her tidbits of knowledge aided temporary successes of the Confederate Army. Arrested and accused multiple times, the proud rebel Belle Boyd could have faced a traitor’s death. In the front yard of her cottage award winning gardens prosper, and inside a representation of her time period stands still for all to see and admire.

Guests are welcome to tour the Ivy Lodge weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., while Belle Boyd’s Cottage doors are opened at 10 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. Special events are often held throughout the year, and are detailed online. The Warren Heritage Society is dedicated to preserving the past for future generations to enjoy. Come appreciate their efforts today.
