Bowieville – Oak Creek Club
- On November 2, 2019
Oak Creek Club Homeowners Association is home to “Bowieville”, the most sophisticated late federal-style plantation house in Prince George’s County. It was built in 1819-1820 by Mary Bowie on property inherited from her father, Maryland Governor Robert Bowie. She died only a few years later, and the property was sold in 1846 to William J. Berry, one of the County’s wealthiest planters. Through-out the Berry family ownership, until the eve of World War II, Bowieville was a center of county society, the scene of many well-publicized balls, receptions, and other social events. Its decorative details are virtually intact and it is of exceptional and architectural importance. Today the Bowieville mansion is privately owned and sits on a hill just inside the gates of the Oak Creek Club Homeowners Association. This very unique and beautiful community is proudly managed by CAMP!
