Established in the early 19th century by George Carter, Oatlands was a thriving wheat plantation and base for numerous business enterprises until the time of the Civil War.
During most of the 20th century, Oatlands served as the country estate of Mr. and Mrs. William Corcoran Eustis, affluent Washingtonians with strong ties to the American political arena. Elegant formal gardens were created by generations of the two families who lived here.
After the Civil War, the plantation became unprofitable. A prominent Washington family purchased, preserved, and maintained the house and grounds as a country estate.
Oatlands tells the stories of a 19th-century working plantation, a turn-of-the-century English-style country house, and the families who made their home there. It is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated by Oatlands, Inc.
