Hosted by The Garden Club of the Eastern Shore
The Eastern Shore of Virginia is a peninsula nestled between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Its history is as old as Captain John Smith and as new as rockets heading for the moon. It is home to the oldest continuous court records in the United States, the freshest seafood and where ponies run wild. Our 2015 house and garden tour tell the story of centuries of architectural trends and development. Fine homes are seldom in sight but never far away. They lurk in romantic tangles of tidewater lanes and woodlands, often opening onto the bay or onto the ocean. Once discovered, they turn out to be in settings of extraordinary pastoral charm. Come join us on a treasure hunt.
