Construction of the estate began in 1803 in the Federal style and surprisingly finished in the 1820s in the Greek Revival style. The plantation features beautiful furnishings and unique architechture. During most of the 20th century Oatlands served as the country estate of Mr. and Mrs. William Corcoran Eustis, affluent Washingtonians with strong ties to the American political arena. Oatlands' formal gardens are among the finest examples of early Virginia landscape design.
