Oxon Hill is located in Prince George's County, in a suburb of Washington, D.C., located southeast of the downtown district and east of Alexandria, Virginia. Oxon Hill was named for the colonial 18th century manor home of Thomas Addison which burned down in 1895 and was replaced in 1929 by a large 49-room neo-Georgian-style home called Oxon Hill Manor, standing on a bluff over the Potomac River. The Revolutionary patriot John Hanson died while visiting the first Manor and is believed to be buried there in an unmarked grave.
The current Manor is now owned by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission and is used for cultural activities, as well as being rented for weddings and special events. In addition to Oxon Hill Manor, the Butler House, Oxon Cove Park and St. Ignatius Church are all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can find many bargains in Oxon Hill's two principal shopping centers --"Rivertowne," which was built about 1985 and "Eastover,” which was built about 1955. The town’s Oxon Hill Library Branch contains the Sojourner Truth Room, an African American research collection of reference materials that includes over 16,000 cataloged items, like sheet music by African American composers, as well as pictures and posters.
Also featured are original editions of some slave narratives, pamphlets, clippings and historical periodicals, including the NAACP's Crisis from 1910, the Journal of Negro History from 1916 and Ebony from 1945. Rosecroft Raceway and Henson Creek Golf Course are among Oxon Hill's recreational attractions, although in 2008 Rosecroft ended live harness horse racing and now only offers betting on televised simulcast races. You can enjoy spectacular views of the National Cathedral, Capitol, Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and other significant DC landmarks from Woodrow Wilson Bridge trail or from atop The Capital Wheel Ferris wheel at National Harbor overlooking the Potomac River.
