A stately mansion, beautiful rolling farmland, exquisite gardens, a repository of more than 200 years of American history and culture – all of these are just minutes from downtown Leesburg at Oatlands Plantation.
Oatlands is flourishing with four full seasons of activities. Past visitors may remember seeing the beautiful irises, peonies and other spring flowers.  The gardens looks very different now with late summer blooms including butterfly bushes, black-eyed susan and sunflowers.  And the vegetable and herb gardens show what a kitchen garden might have been like a century ago.
Special events coming up at Oatlands include a Sunday tea on August 30; the 15th Hunt Country Fall Antiques Fair on Sept 5 and 6; and the Oatlands Cross Country Invitational on September 26.

And from August 24 -31 there’s a sale going on in the Oatlands gift shop:  30% to 70% off current merchandise.
For information about these and other upcoming events, visit the website at www.oatlands.org.
