History of Oxon Hill

Oxon Hill was named for the 18th Century manor home of Thomas Addison (which burned in 1895 but was replaced by another large Georgian-style home called "Oxon Hill Manor," now publicly owned, which has a river view). The community is bisected by the Capital Beltway (I-95/495) and is near the interstate Woodrow Wilson Bridge, whose gridlocked traffic (300,000 vehicles daily) backs-up daily into Oxon Hill until the wider replacement bridge is fully completed in 2008, bringing relief. (Thousands of white-collar commuters working in Northern Virginia's booming economy find that housing is cheaper in Prince George's County.)

Oxon Hill includes many garden apartment communities along with single-family detached homes dating mostly from the 1940s through the 1980s, including the incorporated town Forest Heights. In earlier decades, many residents were scientists from the adjacent U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, but very few are now. Oxon Hill's two principal shopping centers ("Rivertowne" and the much older "Eastover") attract neighborhood customers as well as shoppers from nearby Southeast Washington. Eastover, located at the D.C. state line, is a hub of many bus routes, some of them operating 24 hours a day, and has a Prince George's County Police station.
