A Fall Picnic
Thomas and Gayle Delashmutt, the proprietors of Oak Hill - the Presidential Estate of
James Monroe in Aldie, VA - have invited the members of both the George Washington
Model 'A' Club and the Greater Baltimore Club to host a joint fall picnic on the estate
grounds and to participate in a private tour of the mansion and its gardens. Oak Hill was
commenced in 1820 by James Monroe during his second term in office on 2,000 acres
which he inherited from his uncle in 1808. It was designed by James Hoban, architect for
the White House. Architectural advice and input came from his friend Thomas Jefferson
and the mansion incorporates marble pieces sent from France by the Marquis de
Lafayette in thanks for Monroe's effort's to protect his wife during the French revolution.
Oak Hill is the only presidential estate of the Revolutionary Era still in private hands, was
left largely untouched by occupying troops during the Civil War and is rarely open to the
public. The picnic and entertainment will be hosted by the George Washington Chapter at
the superintendent's house on the estate with walks through the gardens and mansion
from there. Date is Sunday, October 23rd with a rain date of Sunday October 30th .
More to follow on this at the end of the summer, but mark your calendars now!
