Lexington

 Hosted by the Blue Ridge Garden Club

10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Take a stroll or a trolley ride down Main Street and visit four recently restored 18th , 19th and early 20th century homes and gardens located within a half mile of each other in the historic downtown of Lexington. Open to the public for the first time, all have received awards for historic preservation and tell a tale of restoration and adaptive reuse. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, this Shenandoah Valley town is a thriving commercial center bustling with art galleries and unique shops, and home to both VMI and Washington & Lee. Tour highlights include presentations on Tax Credits and the Restoration of Historic Buildings, and The History of Main Street plus tours of Stonewall Jackson Cemetery, container gardening demonstrations, refreshments and blue grass music. Enjoy a special Historic Garden Week luncheon available at downtown restaurants and plan to stay the night in an historic downtown inn or B&B.
