History

This enchanting historic building was constructed in 1896 by a previous state official known as Phineas Lounsbury. A collective effort was made through volunteering, the board of directors and the women’s committee to preserve the structure’s original detailing, such as the unique moldings and decadent staircases. 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.

    Beautiful location

    The Lounsbury House is absolutely beautiful! We really enjoyed being able to use various spaces in the house and on the property. We had the cocktail hour in the back patio area, lawn games out front, and separate dining and dancing areas which allowed people to go where and do what they wanted throughout the reception.

    Cannot say enough good things!

    I truly cannot say enough good things about our experience at the Lounsbury House. The staff, Tracy and Kate, were just amazingly helpful and never made me feel like I was bothering them with all my questions. The venue itself is striking; so many comments from our guests. Just gorgeous. The outside is lovely for photos and the recently-ish renovated interior is so pretty it doesn't even really need to be decorated. The suite for the bride to get ready in, and the groom's room are both great for photos and spacious. It was wonderful to watch guests spilling out onto the huge porch and into the front garden area. There was a place for everyone to be comfortable whether they wanted to be inside dancing or just mingling with friends. The grand staircase was the perfect way for us to enter for our first dance. The only thing to consider is that the dance floor is separate from the dining room so you can't just do your dances during dinner, you have to call people into the hall. That really did not end up being an issue at all; if anything it was nice to offer a change of pace and have people get up and be more part of the experience. We had 119 guests and they fit comfortably at 12 round tables; my bridal party at one rectangular head table.

    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!
