The Ashland Garden Club, Three Rivers Garden Club

Located within 30 minutes of both Richmond and Williamsburg, this driving tour along New Kent Highway includes 3 venues listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is co-hosted by The Ashland Garden Club and the Three Rivers Garden Club. Overlooking the Pamunkey River, Cumberland Plantation (c. 1662) sits on 3,000 acres of formal gardens, flowering fields and nature reserve.  Nearby is Moss Side Plantation’s 216 acres of rolling meadows and farmland, plus a restored Civil War era house with a rear two-story dependency which housed kitchen and living quarters for servants. The original structure at Cedar Lane Plantation dates to 1826 and sits atop a hill with a long view of the surrounding farmland.  It has recently undergone a complete historic restoration and is open to the public for the first time for Historic Garden Week.  Also included in the tour is St. Peters Parish Church where George Washington wed Martha Custis in 1759. Special activities add to a full day in historic New Kent County.
