History

This enchanting historic building was constructed in 1896 by a previous state official known as Phineas Lounsbury.

Today, Lounsbury House is owned by the town of Ridgefield, with a close-knit team on hand who focus on the preservation of this magical building.

    The Best Venue!

    From the moment we toured Lounsbury House, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous (not to mention the stunning bridal suite and groomsmen suite too!), and Tracy was fantastic to work with. She helped us through the ups and downs of re-planning a postponed wedding during a pandemic, and ultimately was a huge part of making sure everything went smoothly. Lounsbury will always be a special place for us!

    Great venue, extremely helpful staff!

    We recently worked with the Lounsbury House for a Cars and Coffee event and it was an absolute success! Tracy was more than patient with us during the planning process and even when I had last minute things that needed to be accommodated. The venue was beautiful and everything turned out perfectly. I highly recommend this team and this venue for any and all events.

    Beautiful location, amazing experience!

    A first class, absolutely stunning and extremely well run wedding site! From the gorgeous crystal chandeliers and period details inside to the beautiful gardens outside, the Lounsbury House was our first choice of venues and did not disappoint. The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating, and we used several vendors based on their recommendations who are the best in the business. The day couldn’t have been more wonderful!

The Lounsbury House is such a stunning venue. As a photographer, I have worked there many times capturing the beautiful weddings that take place there. I find so many locations inside and out for stunning photos of the bride and groom, wedding party, and family shots. The brand new renovation has added to the charm of this historic house!

The Lounsbury House has recently gone through renovations to make it one of the premier wedding venues in Connecticut. The House has a very clean and modern feel while still maintaining the charm of a historic mansion. Both Melanie and Jenn who run the Lounsbury have a keen eye for detail and make every couple feel at ease knowing that every detail will be attended to when it comes to their big day. We absolutely love to work at the Lounsbury House!
