Slide 1: Woodlawn Plantation


Located in Alexandria, Virginia, Woodlawn Plantation was the first property taken over by the National Trust, in 1951. Built in 1805, the Federal/Georgian-style home was a gift from George Washington to his nephew, Major Lawrence Lewis, and his wife. The site also boasts Frank Lloyd Wright’s Pope-Leighey House and a working farm operated in partnership with Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture.
