The Augusta Garden Club

In honor of the hosting garden club’s centennial anniversary, this driving tour showcases five historic homes with outstanding architectural value that chronicle the history of both Staunton and the Augusta Garden Club. Four of these landmarks are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, two were homes of past presidents of the Garden Club of Virginia and one is a presidential birthplace. Featured on the cover of the 2019 Historic Garden Week Guidebook, another provides a glimpse of a just restored, and rarely-opened, residence designed by the architect William Bottomley. Several gardens on the tour were created by the renowned landscape architects Charles Gillette and Arthur Shurcliff. Staunton is one of nation’s historic preservation and beautification success stories. This tour is located close to the city’s celebrated downtown.
