Built around 1858 and mixing Federal and Greek Revival-style architectural details, Bloomfield is one of the last remaining late-period pre-Civil War brick farmhouses in northwestern Fairfax County. The two-story house was constructed for Martha Mead Carper. In 1941, the property was sold out of the Carper-Hammond families, who had owned it for about 125 years. During the Civil War, both Union and Confederate soldiers camped on the property at various times.
