If you have been to Oatlands lately, you may have noticed peeling paint on the mansion–a lot of peeling paint. Many visitors have commented on the sad state of our paint, and asked when we would be repainting. Well the day has arrived! Work began on scraping and repainting the mansion exterior last week and will continue this week. We’re pleased with how much better it looks already!
Oatlands mansion is BIG and this is a big paint job. We have funds from a grant to pay for some of the costs of painting, but we have about $8000.00 left to raise.
