General:
Edgewood was the home of Marie Pichon Oxnard and Henry T. Oxnard (1860-1922) who founded the American Beet Sugar Company. Oxnard, California was named after him. Oxnard made his home in Washington, D.C. as he maintained active interests in tariff legislation affecting the sugar industry. He also maintained a farm in Upperville as his country residence. He was well-known as a breeder of horses at Blue Ridge Farm in Upperville which he established in 1908. It is possible that Edgewood was located at or near Blue Ridge Farm, but that remains unclear.
At the time the garden was documented in the 1930s, it included a large swimming pool with a flagstone surround, lawns, hedges, shrubs, mature trees, and stone steps with urns alongside.
Persons associated with the garden include Henry T. Oxnard and Marie Pichon Oxnard (former owners, 1920s).
