History of Oak Lawn

Around 1850, the Burford family built "The Mansion House" incorporating their original four room family home dating prior to 1800.  The house was at the center of a bustling nineteenth century village, complete with general store, train station (Burford's Depot), blacksmith shop, post office, mill, church, one room school, and ice house.  
The house and gardens are situated off Rt. 29 between Sweet Briar and Lynchburg, near Monroe, and overlooks Tobacco Row Mountain on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  This classical Georgian 4-over-4 clapboard farm house has been carefully restored and thoughtfully renovated, offering its owners and their guests every comfort and quiet charm.

Oak Lawn is on both the Virginia Landmark Registry and the National Register of Historic Places.
