With easy access from Interstate 81, Bridgewater is where history blends with hospitality. This charming tour begins at the Cracked Pillar, a c. 1818 property that has been converted into a cozy tavern. The abundance of parks in this rural hamlet has made this a pedestrian-friendly town.  A short drive away is the Bridgewater College president’s, home brimming with college memorabilia, some dating back to the institution’s founding in 1880. On Main Street visitors will be welcomed to a Greek revival residence that includes a guest house.  It is now a beautifully appointed  social venue. Located due west  and overlooking the North River is a private home modeled after the George Wythe home in Williamsburg. Guests will enjoy the owner’s art collection. Relax at the end of the day at nearby Bluestone Vineyard. Tour the owner’s hilltop home and enjoy refreshments on the winery terrace.

$25. in advance; $30. day of tour; $15. single site
