Celebrating the Oak Hill Mansion Open House

Madame Chairman:

Working closely with the Fairfax County Park Authority, we are pleased that once again the Board of Supervisors will be co-sponsoring the Oak Hill History Day.

Oak Hill, a privately owned 18th century Georgian-style home, is all that remains of the Ravensworth Tract – totaling more than 22,000 acres – dating from the 1670’s. As part of the agreement, the owners may be requested to open the property and the first floor of the home four times a year for public use.

This free program, a celebration of local history, will be held this Saturday, September 29, from Noon to 4 P.M. at the historic Oak Hill Mansion, located at 4716 Wakefield Chapel Road in Annandale. Parking will be offsite at 4414 Holborn Avenue at the Nancy Sprague Technology Center in Annandale. A free shuttle bus service will provide visitors with convenient transportation. On this day, the Oak Hill owners invite the public into see the first floor of their home and the beautiful surrounding grounds.

The theme this year is Celebrating Fairfax County History and its historians. Local Historians will have fascinating exhibits and will be selling their books. There will also be farm exhibits and animals from Frying Pan Park, a Civil War re-enactor, free refreshments, and self-guided tours of the grounds.

Madame Chairman, without objection we ask that the Office of Public Affairs and Park Authority publicize this event, and would also ask that the Park Authority provide support and assistance in running this program, as they so graciously do every year.
