Historic Garden Week in Richmond, Virginia

Virginia’s Richmond Region invites visitors to experience a rich mosaic of some of the country’s finest properties during Historic Garden Week, April 16- to 23, presented by the Garden Club of Virginia. 
Visitors will help celebrate 78 years of preserving Virginia’s heritage with three tours in the Richmond Region. 
During “America’s Largest Open House,” the Richmond Region will highlight four centuries of design with three tours that will feature more than 30 different homes, gardens and grounds:
• April 19, Hampton Gardens/Cary Street Road Tour: Guests will tour stately homes designed in the Georgian Revival, English Tudor, and Colonial style. A highlight of the tour includes a brick and frame Colonial, constructed in 1923, that is one of the oldest houses in Hampton Gardens.

• April 20, Monument Avenue Tour: Guests can visit handsome townhouses more than a century old, lining Monument Avenue, long regarded as one of the most beautiful avenues in America. Adorned with monumental statues of historic figures, Monument Avenue is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a National Historic Landmark District.

•April 21, Westmoreland Place/Windsor Farms: Guests visiting Windsor Farms will see one of Richmond's first planned neighborhoods, with homes mostly designed in the Colonial Revival and Cape Cod styles.
All are walking tours through some of Richmond’s most historic neighborhoods.
