Dolley Madison Garden Club

This driving tour celebrates the Centennial of the Dolley Madison Garden Club, a founding member of the Garden Club of Virginia, and hosts of the Orange County tour. Four gracious homes, with links to the earliest history of this beautiful place, highlight the area’s agricultural and equestrian roots. One is a Madison family home, now the headmaster’s house at Woodberry Forest, an acclaimed boy’s school. Another is a world-renowned equestrian training facility. Two are former residences of founding members of the Dolley Madison Garden Club; all are owned by individuals with flair and elegance. With their history, architecture and gardens, all four properties - Gaston, Tivoli, Windholme and The Residence - showcase the guiding principles which inspired the founders of the Dolley Madison Garden Club: beautification, preservation and restoration.  Christ Church in nearby Gordonsville will also be open, and serves as Tour Headquarters.
