Staunton is one of Virginia’s premier historic preservation and beautification success stories, and a highly-acclaimed tourist destination. To honor the Garden Club of Virginia’s Centennial, the Augusta Garden Club, one of its founding clubs, is hosting a tour that features turn-of-the-20th-century urban homes, most of which include beautiful gardens, as well as recently renovated verdant urban spaces. Of special note are newly refurbished structures and signage in Gypsy Hill Park, located in the heart of Staunton. During the morning hours of the tour plein air artists from Beverley Street Studio School can be observed painting in the gardens. Visitors will enjoy browsing scenic parks, historic buildings, galleries, and gardens designed by renowned landscape architect Charles Gillette, on this walking tour showcasing the downtown area.

Advance ticket = $25 pp
