Virginia invites you to come see the splendor of their homes and gardens during the State’s Historic Garden Week from April 17-25, 2010 when scenic gardens and historic homes across Virginia open their gates for public tours. Virginia’s Historic Garden Week is considered to be the largest and grandest ‘Open House’ in America.

The state of Virginia has an abundance of inviting landscapes from seaside communities stretching along miles of coastal beaches, to stately historic mansions and plantations dotting rolling countrysides, to the beguiling rustic life in the blue ridge mountains.  This year will be the 77th Historic Garden Tour in Virginia as more than 250 homes and gardens welcome visitors.   There are over 36 separate tours organized by local garden clubs, each offering a glimpse into 6 or more homes and gardens.  Visitors are treated to strolls through formal and walled gardens, cottage and perennial plantings; and tours of Revolutionary,  Civil War and Victorian era homes.

Everyone who appreciates the beauty of a tended garden, the architecture of historic America and finely executed decor, will revel in Virginia’s “Open House” celebration.  Visit VAGardenWeek.Org for a glimpse at the full schedule of tours by area.
