The Oaks

Nottoway's grounds feature 16 majestic oak trees spread across the 31-acre property. 

The oldest tree on the property is estimated to be 162 years old - the same age as the mansion itself.   

In 2015, 11 of the 16 trees were registered with the Live Oak Society of the Lousiana Garden Club Federation, Inc.  Each of the 11 trees were named after the Randolph children and can be identified on the grounds by the plaque at the base of each of the trees.   Listed below are the facts on these historic trees.  Enjoy walking our property and see if you can find them all.
