About Oxon Hill Manor
Oxon Hill Manor is one of only two early 20th century Classical Revival mansions in Prince George’s County. Built in 1929, Oxon Hill Manor is a large, two story neo-Georgian brick mansion, with a hip roof, flanking wings, and fine decorative detail. It was designed by architect Jules Henri de Sibour for career diplomat Sumner Welles and was built near the site of the original 18th century Oxon Hill Manor, which was destroyed by fire in 1895.
