Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lynchburg is home to timeless, classic architecture, tree-lined avenues, and a rich history of preserving the area’s celebrated homes and gardens. From historic to twentieth-century design, five properties are featured on this self-driving tour, including Thomas Jefferson’s personal retreat, Poplar Forest. The tour captures the creative spirit, with striking interiors curated by aesthetic homeowners, including a skilled portrait artist, a talented floral designer, a dynamic decorative artist, and a well-traveled decorator. Secluded gardens, brimming with hues of spring, showcase a dedication to native plants, careful planning, and attention to scale and proportion. At Poplar Forest, a National Historic Landmark, we celebrate the Garden Club of Virginia's Centennial by showcasing the restoration of the Carriage Turnaround and Rose Garden made possible by proceeds from Historic Garden Week and archeological research of the adjacent Rose Garden made possible by proceeds from Historic Garden Week. Buses and group tours are welcomed.
