Much of this walking and driving tour in Petersburg takes place in the Historic Poplar Lawn District, which began as Fort Henry in 1653. Over the years, the area saw an active Indian trade, was used as a military training ground, and has been a racetrack. An eclectic neighborhood developed consisting of 154 homes. Four of those homes are showcased on this tour and are within walking distance of each other. Of equal importance are the other featured properties. Historic Battersea, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will be open after major renovations. This villa is a rare example of Palladian style architecture. In addition, an enchanting woodland garden is included on the tour ticket, as well as Centre Hill Museum, a restoration project of the Garden Club of Virginia.
