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.

  • The Lounsbury House is a gorgeous venue for any wedding or event. Although I had my own style and theme for decorating, the house would still be beautiful without any extra effort! I had my wedding in January so the inside of the house was cozy and the porch offered an extra area for people to gather. Having several rooms inside allows some separation for different spaces, yet the house is also very open so everyone feels together. All of my guests commented on the beauty of the house both inside and out and my photographer was able to take breathtaking photos. If I had to have my wedding all over again, I would choose the Lounsbury house without a doubt!
