Download Complete Tour Description
The Little Garden Club of Winchester and Winchester-Clarke Garden Club
History and a panorama of orchards and farmland showcase this area; the tour features four homes and the Hopewell Meeting House, all dating from the 1700s. Just north of Winchester, it was the frontier between the English and the French and Indians. Settled by Quakers from eastern Pennsylvania in the 1730s, it became known as Apple Pie Ridge when Hessian soldiers quartered nearby would walk to the ridge to eat pies cooked by the Quakers with apples from their orchards. While in the area, visitors are encouraged to travel into Winchester and tour the Garden Club of Virginia’s restoration project in front and east of John Handley High School, an endowed public high school built in the 1920s.
