Host
Harborfront Garden Club and The Garden Club of Norfolk

The Garden Clubs of Norfolk and Harborfront welcome visitors to the southern part of Historic Ghent featuring late 19th century homes and gardens. Stroll past notable examples of the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival styles on this walking tour.  Over 100 years ago stately houses began to appear on tree-lined streets nestled within the neighborhood of Mowbray Arch, situated along the banks of The Norfolk Hague with views over the creek to the grass banks on the opposite shore.  This picturesque setting was dotted with quaint wrought-iron bridges and framed with native azaleas and dogwoods.  Authors, musicians and Presidents frequented the urban homes of Norfolk’s early “movers and shakers”.  See how these private spaces have been meticulously renovated by current homeowners. Nearby attractions include the Chrysler Museum of Art and the Virginia Opera’s home stage.
