Oatlands: Leesburg, Virginia
We went over the river on the Jubal Early ferry, bypassed the crowded malls, and landed at the Oatlands Historic House and Gardens in Leesburg, Virginia. A former plantation belonging to a significant founding family, the Carters, then valued by the Eustis family in the early 1900s who were instrumental in founding the National Trust. The site is another great property administered by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
