In the late 1800s Westhampton served as the last stop on the line from the City of Richmond on the nation’s first trolley system, becoming a summer retreat for many people in the area. St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, St. Catherine’s School, St. Christopher’s School and the Country Club of Virginia attracted many families to the neighborhood and soon Westhampton was developed beyond just summer cottages and farmhouses. Today, this vibrant area is busy with restaurants and attractive retail stores, as well as churches and schools. This tour tells the history of the area by showcasing a variety of private homes of different ages. An original summer cottage on Cary Street Road, a farmhouse on York Road and several homes on historic Three Chopt Road including an early 1920s country estate will be open.

Advance Ticket price - $45 pp
