Historic Garden Week 2015

Please check back later to learn about 2015 events.

Historic Garden Week tours are the perfect way to enjoy Virginia’s unique regions. For eight days every spring visitors are welcomed to 250 of Virginia’s most picturesque gardens and private homes showcased in 31 tours during “America’s Largest Open House.” Historic Garden Week is sponsored by the Garden Club of Virginia. The beginning dates to 1927, when a flower show organized by GCV volunteers raised $7,000 to save trees planted by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. Today, proceeds fund the restoration and preservation of the state’s significant historic public gardens.
