A Working Farm Right Across the River
May 27, 2014 by: jeffl499 from Alexandria, VA
A beautiful 19th century farm that has been resurrected and preserved by the National Park Service. Set on a hill overlooking the Potomac, it features cows, pigs, horses, chickens and even a mule. The full range of old farm equipment and implements along with small museums brings farming alive. Join park rangers to gather eggs from the chickens, milk the cows and take a wagon ride around the acreage. Stop for the tour of the magnificent farm house perched on a hill in the center of the farm. Started by a prominent family in the early part of the 19th century, Oxon Hill was expanded to feed the patients at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Washington, wounded soldiers from the Civil War and then back to supplying the Hospital in the 1950s. Helpful rangers make your visit both pleasant and informative.
Super place to visit!

When in the area you must stop by! A great park with working farm. Beautiful! We would have stayed longer if it wasn't so unusually hot!
Nice Colonial Farmstead

This is a great place to picnic with young children. The farm fascinates them and they occasionally have demonstrations to accompany the things you see. In addition to that, we saw both a deer and a fox on one visit.
