This historic home is now the headquarters of the Warren Heritage Society.

Built in 1825, this home, known as the “Ivy Lodge”, has served educational purposes throughout its existence.  Prior to the Civil War, it was the home of Miss Tenesia and Jeanette Tyler, relatives of President Tyler, who taught private art lessons and etiquette to young ladies at the home.  Following the war, the home was owned by Confederate veteran Major Victor Brown, who re-opened the Front Royal Academy.  It was also at this location that the Warren Heritage Society was founded and today it is an excellent museum with archives and exhibits on Warren County’s proud history.
