April 24 & 25 – Historic Garden Week Tours: “100 Years in Hunt Country”

The Garden Club of Virginia celebrates Historic Garden Week in Loudoun with “100 Years in Hunt Country.” From a restored 1812 Federal farmhouse overlooking Paris Valley to a 1913 Georgian Manor house in an English park-like setting, visitors can tour houses and landscapes that celebrate the open spaces of Virginia’s Piedmont. Tickets in advance are $35 or $40 day of tour.

The beginning of Historic Garden Week dates to 1927, when a flower show organized by the Garden Club of Virginia raised an impressive $7,000 to save trees planted by Thomas Jefferson on the lawn at Monticello.  Proceeds from Historic Garden Week fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic gardens, and provide graduate level research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth.  Since the first statewide tour, over $17 million has been contributed to these worthwhile causes!
