Host
The Garden Club of the Middle Peninsula

Enjoy a relaxing stroll down the cherry and pear tree lined streets in West Point, a quaint waterfront village on the Middle Peninsula. Tour properties showcase Victorian architecture and a contemporary environmentally “green” house , as well as spectacular views of three rivers. Located just 40 miles east of Richmond, West Point, founded by Captain John West in 1658, is nestled where the Pamunkey and Mattaponi Rivers form the York River.  By the late 1800s the town had become a fashionable vacation spot with a large hotel overlooking the rivers.  Steam boats from Baltimore brought goods and tourists to its ports while railroads connected it to Richmond.  

$25 pp Advance, $30 pp day-of
