This self-driving tour showcases three distinct areas straddling the Virginia - North Carolina border. All are featured for the first time on Historic Garden Week. Begin at the Virginia International Raceway, Tour Headquarters, and a world-class racing venue located in Alton. Tour one of the villas at South Bend, part of the motorsport resort complex, enjoy shopping at the Marketplace and lunch at The Oak Tree Tavern, a plantation house boasting original Thomas Day designs. A free black furniture craftsman and cabinet maker, Thomas Day’s workshop was the largest and most productive in North Carolina in its heyday in the 1850s. Located just twelve miles southeast of Danville in the quaint town of Milton, North Carolina, visitors will enjoy a reenactment in Thomas Day’s Workshop. In addition, tour includes access to two historic private homes, several churches and the Milton Renaissance Museum. A newly constructed home in a gated community on nearby Hyco Lake completes a full day of touring.
