Located in the Ginter Park Historic District ,this turn-of-the-century residential neighborhood located in Richmond’s northside is characterized by wide divided boulevards running north and south, and large residential lots. The institutional anchor located in the center of the neighborhood is Union Presbyterian Seminary, built in 1898. This easily walkable Wednesday tour will feature homes in the immediate blocks North and South of the Seminary. Seminary Avenue offers a surprising variation of architectural styles, ranging from modest Queen Anne cottages to stately Colonial Revival mansions. Formal, tree-lined streets and sidewalks are found throughout the district and were part of the initial community planning begun by Major Lewis Ginter in the 1890s.

Advance ticket $45 pp, day-of is $50 pp
