Old Welbourne in Loudoun County is an impressive circa-1878 manor house originally built in the Queen Anne style and remodeled in Colonial Revival style in 1910. Established in 1812, Old Welbourne since 1840 has continually hosted the Piedmont Fox Hounds, partaking of the area’s foxhunting tradition that emerged as a farmer’s past time before evolving into a more formalized social event. Today’s 164-acre property contains the ruins of the original 1812 home site, a family cemetery, and the stone ruins of an early 19th century bank barn and retaining wall, a circa-1878 farm building located to rear of the current house, and a circa 1910 frame tenant house. Historic structures include an 1812 roadbed and a circa 1837 stone springhouse-dairy.
