Photo Gallery: Oatlands Program Reflects on World War II

The grounds of Oatlands Historic House and Garden looked like a scene out of the mid-century this weekend.

The property dedicated Saturday and Sunday to the observance of the Second World War through its program, “From the Front Lines to the Home Front: Oatlands and World War II.”

The event featured living history interpreters, oral history recordings, service dog training, displays of military vehicles and Jeep rides, military exhibitors, children’s activities and performances of the songs of the period.

Oatlands staff and volunteers were especially excited to partner with Voices of Freedom, which brought a special mobile studio that allows veterans of all wars to record and document their experiences.
