The Loudoun Preservation Society’s grants program provides funding to Loudoun County non-profit organizations and government entities for preservation, conservation, and restoration projects. Funds raised for the program go back into our community for these worthy projects. Over $830,000 has been awarded since the Grants Program’s inception. Please help us to continue this respected and much-needed program to preserve our precious heritage resources. 

Rockland first came into the Rust family in 1817.  The property and house were purchased by General George Rust from the estate of George Washington Ball. General Rust was a member of the Virginia legislature from 1819-1824 and Superintendent of the Arsenal and Arms Factory in Harper’s Ferry from 1830-1837. Rockland descended through the Rust family to the present-day owners.

Tickets are $75 per person.  Limited tickets are available and advance reservations are required.
