The Martinsville Garden Club and the Garden Study Club
With history rooted in tobacco, textiles, and furniture, Martinsville has discovered the “art” in its name. The Art and Culture District now plays an integral part in the revitalization of the town nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This “Art in Bloom” tour features interpretive arrangements showcased in the district's museums and gardens and a few private homes nearby. The showcased homes range from early 20th century Colonial and Georgian Revival architecture with traditional décor to a New Orleans-inspired home with eclectic interior design. One of the highlights of this driving tour is the Little Post Office, c. 1893, with grounds graced by a new sculpture garden and a display of vintage Porsches.
$20 pp. Children 6 to 12 are $10pp. Available on tour day at the tour headquarters and the individual homes
