Bladen County – Preservation Celebration at Oakland Plantation

Saturday May 20
4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Cape Fear River in Bladen County, Oakland Plantation was built around 1780 by General Thomas Brown, an American Revolutionary War patriot. Oakland is a well-preserved post-Revolutionary plantation house with handsome late Georgian interiors, one of the few of its type and period remaining in the state. More than this, though, its dramatic approach and setting make it a place of unique and evocative beauty. The property was purchased in 1941 by J.A. Neisler of the prominent Kings Mountain textile family who immediately began to restore and modernize the house to host guest deer hunters. The first Oakland hunts were held in 1941 with guests staying at the newly renovated plantation and hunting on the Neisler family land. The annual Oakland hunts continue today and are legendary for the quality of the hunting, the richness of the fellowship, the depth of the hospitality, and the sense of history. Preservation North Carolina is thrilled to be able to share this wonderful historic property with you! Please save the date; full event details will be posted soon.
