A stately mansion, beautiful rolling farmland, exquisite gardens, over 200 years of American history and culture – all of these can be found at Oatlands Historic House and Gardens situated on historic Route 15 near Leesburg, Virginia. Built in 1804 by George Carter, a member of one of Virginia's first familes, Oatlands was a thriving plantation until the Civil War. In the 20th century, Oatlands became the country estate of the politically prominent Eustis family of Washington.   Open to the public since 1966, Oatlands is a National Trust Historic Site and a National Historic Landmark, and continues to flourish with four full seasons of activities. Come visit this beautiful part of Virginia with its important historic landscape, hear the stories Oatlands has to tell, discover the history of the place and its personalities, and enjoy the many programs and events at Oatlands.
