The Petersburg Garden Club
This driving tour features homes with several different architectural styles so abundant in Petersburg. Our eclectic tour features properties from within our Historical Districts and three which have connections with the filming of the PBS series “Mercy Street”: The grand Federal style home, Centre Hill; the property where we will feature a hand built furniture workshop in the colonial style; and the home of the hat makers for the series. In addition, this home has an important Civil War connection. The tour also includes a 1763 Georgian built for the founder of Petersburg, and an 1823 Greek Revival, a former Designer Home whose garden features mostly native plants. Finally, an artist’s retreat and courtyard that have been created out of combining 3 commercial buildings will be presented.
Fee: $30 in advance, $35 tour day
