Bloomsbury is a historic home located near Orange, Orange County, Virginia. The original section dates to the early- to mid-18th century, and is a 1 1/2-story, frame Colonial dwelling with a steep gable roof and "U"-plan stairway of a form unknown elsewhere in Virginia. It retains nearly all its original late-Georgian interior detailing. It was doubled in size about 1797, with a two-story Federal-period addition that stands at right angles to the original block and is flanked by early shed-roofed end wings. The house was restored in the 1960s. Also on the property are a contributing 19th-century smokehouse, a contributing 18th-century cemetery, and a contributing garden site.
