Virginia’s Historic Garden Week Tour

Winchester is the oldest city west of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located in its downtown, this tour includes access to four stately private homes that showcase the charm and rich history of the area. George Washington worked there as a surveyor at age 16. Incredibly, the city changed hands over seventy times during the Civil War.

Among the featured properties are an antique-filled beauty, a grand in-town estate situated on four acres, and two historic homes located on the first street to be named after our first President. All boast lovely gardens and grounds.The tour includes a stop at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley for tea. Boxed lunches will be available at Bonnie Blue Southern Market, recently touted by the Washington Post as a “Road Trip Inspiration.”

Advance ticket price – $30 pp
