The Oak Hill Mansion was built circa 1790 on the historic Ravensworth tract by Richard Fitzhugh, Oak Hill exudes the grandeur of Georgian style. Renowned restoration architect Walter M. Macomber's Colonial Revival renovations in the 1940s added a touch of timeless elegance. The estate's name, "Oak Hill," pays homage to two majestic oak trees gracing the property.

In 2004, Oak Hill secured a spot in the National Register of Historic Places. The collaborative efforts of the Fairfax County Park Authority, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, and Seville Homes led to a historic and conservation easement, preserving the privately-owned Oak Hill home and property, including its 200-year-old boxwoods.

The Oak Hill Mansion Open House is made possible by the dedicated efforts of the Fairfax County Park Foundation, Fairfax County Park Authority, Northern Virginia Conservation Trust, and Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.

Oak Hill Manor is located at 4716 Wakefield Chapel Road in Annandale, Virginia. For more information about Oak Hill and this year's open house, please visit the Oak Hill website.
