Ellmore Farmhouse

Ellmore Farmhouse

The Ellmore Farmhouse is a two-story, 3,300-square-foot property located on West Ox Road in Herndon, Virginia. The farmhouse was constructed principally of yellow pine in 1891 for Mrs. Mary W. Ellmore and her two children. Members of the Ellmore family occupied the property for more than 50 years, operating a productive dairy farm there through 1945, when the property was sold.

The successive owners continued to operate a dairy farm until selling the farm in 1954. In February 2001, the Fairfax County Park Authority purchased the property for inclusion in Frying Pan Farm Park.

ServiceSource, a national nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities, was awarded a sublease in February 2022 to restore and use the Ellmore Farmhouse through Fairfax County’s Resident Curator Program. Restoration work was completed in the Fall of 2023 and the farmhouse now serves as a satellite location for ServiceSource’s Long-Term Community Integration Services program. Its integration into Frying Pan Farm Park provides opportunities for participants in ServiceSource’s LTCIS program to tend a garden, interact with farm animals, serve as guides for tours of the historic house and participate in a variety of other therapeutic and recreational activities. In addition, the Blossom Café and Bloom Gift Shop located in the building will provide opportunities for employment.
