The land on which Bush Hill Woods now sits was once the Richard Marshall Scott family plantation, which was known for its fruit trees. Some of the Scott Plantation fruit trees were given to George Washington for use at Mount Vernon. Bush Hill Woods also served as a Civil War headquarters for the Union Army and as a detention site for Hitler’s foreign affairs minister during World War II. The original Scott plantation home was destroyed by arson in 1977.
