Roanoke – Fincastle


The Roanoke Valley, in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is home to the thriving city of Roanoke and beautiful surrounding counties and towns. The region has been recognized for its exceptional outdoor living which includes hiking, biking and multiple water activities in and around the Roanoke River and Carvins Cove. Nestled in the adjacent Botetourt County is the county seat of Fincastle, Virginia. This driving tour features five private homes and gardens, including Santillane, the cover property on this year’s Guidebook. Designated as a Lewis and Clark community with ties to both Andrew Lewis and William Clark, Fincastle became the county seat in 1772 when Botetourt County stretched all the way to the Mississippi River. Fincastle boasts multiple buildings dating to the 18th and 19th centuries. It is also the location of Fincastle Presbyterian Church, a restoration project of the Garden Club of Virginia.
