Sponsored by The Little Garden Club of Winchester and The Winchester-Clarke Garden Club
Located in the far northwest corner of the state, Winchester is a scenic area nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Apple orchards abound and are celebrated with a festival that dates back to 1924. Named after Winchester, England, the town received the fourth city charter in the entire state in 1750 by the House of Burgesses. George Washington spent a good portion of his young life in Winchester helping survey the Fairfax land grant for Thomas Fairfax, Sixth Lord Fairfax.
This house and garden tour features four lovely homes belonging to local garden club members. Fellow Garden Club of Virginia volunteers will decorate the rooms open to the public with fabulous flower arrangements, a hallmark of all Historic Garden Week tours. While the homes are located within the town, the gardens evoke a sense of tranquility allowing visitors to feel as if they have entered a hidden oasis.
Advance tickets are $22, at the following locations in Winchester: Classic Touch Interiors, Kimberly’s, Simply Charming Boutique, the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Museum Store and the Winchester-Frederick County Visitor’s Center. Regular tickets are $25.
