DBA completed a Conditions Assessment and Preservation Plan for Belair Mansion and Stables, a National Register Listed property. Built for Provincial Governor of Maryland Samuel Ogle and his wife Anne Tasker Ogle, this 1745 Georgian plantation provides the setting for centuries of thoroughbred racing excellence. Belair’s influence on American horse racing continued into the 20th Century under three generations of the Woodward family, who constructed the stables to house an enviable team of thoroughbreds, including the Triple Crown winner Gallant Fox and Omaha. The mansion and stables now operate as a museum run by the City of Bowie. The documents prepared by DBA assessed the condition of the building and its dependencies to guide the City’s preservation, maintenance and repair of this historically significant property.
