A Visit to Oatlands

Last month I toured Oatlands Plantation with members of the Mt. Jackson Garden Club. This was my first visit to the historic house and gardens, although I had been to events in the carriage house meeting room.

The house dates to the early 1800's and has been lovingly restored. The extensive gardens are on a hillside landscaped into tiers.

Oatlands is near Leesburg, VA. It is a National Trust for Historic Preservation site.
