About Historic Rockland

Historic Rockland is a ranche wedding venue in the greater Washington, D.C. area where couples can celebrate their wedding in a classic country style. This venue features a manor house surrounded by acres of farmland, pine trees, and a piece of the Potomac River bank on the Maryland-Virginia state line. Couples will find this venue approximately 30 minutes from the Dulles International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity

A total of 300 guests can join couples in their wedding celebration at Historic Rockland. The venue’s property includes numerous locations perfectly suited for a tented reception or open-air ceremony. The largest area is the South Lawn. This space offers views of the meadow garden and cattle field in the distance. One of the most picturesque locations is the area below the rock outcroppings. From here, couples and guests get a view up through the colorful gardens at the manor house in the background. Ceremonies and cocktail receptions have also taken place by the venue’s pool. For very intimate guest lists, couples can use the manor house living room as an indoor ceremony location. Receptions are most commonly held in tents upon the property.

Services Offered

Couples can host their ceremony, reception or engagement party at this historic wedding venue. The mansion offers accommodations, a bridal suite and liability insurance. Parking onsite is also available.

History

This historic home was built in 1822 by General George Rust. It became home to Ida Lee and her thirteen children, and still today is owned by descendants of the Rusts. The house serves as a living museum and event venue today, with early American antiques as furnishings, many of which are originals. Portraits and artwork can also be found throughout this historic house.

    Historic Rockland is amazing. The grounds are stunning yet understated. Many areas and corner for the different parts of the wedding and for guests to explore. The owner, Libby, is caring, on top of things, and very accommodating. She went out of her to way to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams. Highly recommend!

    I would recommend Historic Rockland to anyone getting married in the DMV area. Libby, the owner, was responsive throughout the whole process and she recommended great vendors to work with. Not to mention, the property itself is absolutely gorgeous! There are sprawling fields, beautiful flowers, a historic home, and plenty of flat space to pitch a reception tent. And there are beautiful old trees throughout the area that give great shade during the summer months. An added bonus is that you can rent out two houses on the venue for your family or bridal parties to stay in. We rented the houses for Friday and Saturday night and had a bride and groom house. It was a lot of fun and staying in the venue houses made the wedding day stress free since I could just sit back and relax that morning. I hope you love historic rockland as much as we did!
