About Bluemont

The Village of Bluemont was settled in the 1770s at the base of Snicker’s Gap in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Originally known as Snickersville, the town officially became Bluemont in September 1900 at the behest of the Washington & Ohio Railroad. Heading west on route 7, Bluemont is the last Loudoun town before heading ‘over the mountain’ at Bears Den and Raven Rocks and crossing the Shenandoah River on the way to Winchester. It also is the highest elevation community in Loudoun, at almost 1000 feet.

Residents of Bluemont enjoy country living, with many properties having 30+ acres. Spanning three counties and two states, the small village is home to  Boulder Crest RetreatGreat Country Farms, Bluemont Vineyards., and Bear’s Den Overlook. In the last few years, we’ve seen some craft breweries popping up, notably Bear Chase and Dirt Farm Brewing.  The downtown area of Bluemont remains quaint with a general store, antique shop, and other small businesses. There are less than 500 homes in the bucolic community, and no typical Loudoun County subdivisions.

Each year is highlighted by the Bluemont Fair, held the third week of every September. Featuring a 10K race, pickle and pie contests, music, a children’s fair, and an art show, 2013 will mark the 44th edition. The town, like many in Loudoun, is steeped in history. Snickersville Gap saw numerous skirmishes during the Civil War; you can read much of the town and community history on the town’s website.
