Oatlands Plantation (Leesburg, Virginia)
United States of America -- Virginia -- Loudoun County -- Leesburg
Scope and Contents:
Folder includes work sheets, brochures, garden map, landscape plan since 1965, photo prints, and copies of articles.
General:
George Carter, great-grandson of Robert "King" Carter built the three-story mansion and developed the land as an agricultural plantation shortly after the turn of the 19th century. The Eustises, former owners, renovated the mansion and restored the walled gardens. They extended the terraces, added a boxwood walk, and built a tea house and reflecting pool. In 1965, the Eustis daughters presented the National Trust with the 261-acre estate. The estate became a National Historic Landmark in 1972. A restoration effort began in 1980s to return the gardens to Mrs. Eustis's plans in the early 1900s. The mansion and gardens are now open to the public.
Persons associated with the property include: George Carter (former owner, 1798-); George C. Carter, Jr. (former owner, ?-1897); Stilton Hutchins (1897-1902); William Corcoran Eustis (former owner, 1902-1965); Mrs. Eustis Emmet and Mrs. David Findley (former owners, 1964); National Trust for Historic Preservation (owner, 1965-present); George Carter (constructed terraces and orangerie, early 1880s); Mrs. Custis Eustis (designer of flower beds and rose garden and extended boxwood parterre); and Alredo Francesco Siani (horticulturist, 1982-?).

Major Isaac Hite Jr., who fought with the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and his first wife Eleanor (Nelly) Conway Madison, a sister of President James Madison, built the Federal style house beginning in 1794, using limestone quarried on the 483 acre property. The landscape plan included groves of trees for shade and was influenced by the less formal 18th century English gardens that complement rather than contrast with the natural setting. The fields would have been planted in grain for livestock, including cattle and Merino sheep. During Hite's lifetime the property was expanded to 7,500 acres and included a distillery and several mills. The house has a south façade of dressed limestone, and is in the pavilion style favored by Thomas Jefferson. There are several outbuildings. The only records of the garden show light foundation plantings around the house and a latticework fence.
During the Civil War, Belle Grove Plantation was the setting of the Battle of Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864, in which Union General Philip Sheridan defeated Confederate General Jubal Early.
The Brumback family owned the property from 1907 to 1929. Francis Welles Hunnewell purchased the property in 1929 and bequeathed it to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1964.
In 1983, the Garden Club of Virginia voted to restore the gardens at Belle Grove Plantation, using funds raised in their annual garden walks. The gardens were restored to the style of circa 1820. University of Connecticut Professor Emeritus Rudy J. Favretti (Fellow in the American Society of Landscape Architects) designed the restoration. Restoration included pruning the trees to restore light to the house and open the view of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains and replacing the large foundation plantings including diseased boxwoods with low-growing plants. In addition, an overgrown herb garden was converted to a demonstration garden comprised of plants used in cooking, medicine and commerce in the 19th century, with restored latticework fencing on three sides and post and rail fencing on the fourth side.
Belle Grove Plantation, now 283 acres, is operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and open to the public. Sites on the grounds include the ice house, old hall, dairy, smokehouse, blacksmiths shop, demonstration garden, slave cemetery, and agricultural fields. There is also a library of local, architectural, crafts and agricultural history, and an artifacts collection.
Persons associated with the property include Major Isaac Hite (former owner, 1794-1836) and descendents of the Hite family, the Brumback family (former owner, 1907-1929), Francis Welles Hunnewell (former owner, 1929), Rudy J. Favretti (1983, restoration landscape architect) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation (owner, 1964-present)

General:
Looking toward the eastern slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Filoli lies about 25 miles south of San Francisco in the Crystal Springs Watershed. The mansion and gardens were built between 1916 and 1919 for William Bowers Bourn, II, and his wife Agnes Moody Bourn, who founded the Hillsborough Garden Club in 1922. Willis Polk was architect for the mansion, Arthur Brown, Jr., undertook additional architectural designs, and Bruce Porter designed the gardens. Isabella Worn supervised the gardens' planting and oversaw maintenance of the gardens for many years thereafter. Encompassing more than 15 acres, the gardens incorporate a formal design with imaginative plantings and many unique specimens from outside the United States. Following the Bourns' deaths in 1936, the property was acquired by William P. and Lurline Matson Roth. In 1975 Mrs. Roth deeded the estate to the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include William Bowers Bourn, II, and Agnes Moody Bourn (former owners, 1916-1936); William P. and Lurline Matson Roth (former owners, 1937-1975); Bruce Porter (landscape architect, 1916-1919); Isabella Worn (horticulturist, 1916-1950); Willis Polk (architect, 1916-1919); and Arthur Brown, Jr. (architect).
