86th Annual Old Town Alexandria Historic Homes & Garden Tour
April 27, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission: $45 in advance at www.VaGardenWeek.org; $55 on the date of the tour at the Athenaeum or Old Presbyterian Meeting House
On Saturday, April 27th, five of Old Town Alexandria’s finest private homes and gardens will open to the public, as part of Historic Garden Week in Virginia, the oldest and largest house and garden tour in the nation. The homes will feature beautiful floral arrangements created by the members of the Garden Club of Alexandria and The Hunting Creek Garden Club, which are sponsoring the tour, open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This walking tour features private townhomes and secluded gardens located along the tree lined streets of Alexandria’s historic district, refreshments and a marketplace at the Athenaeum, and is just steps away from Old Town’s fine dining and boutique shopping. Tour tickets also provide access to two Garden Club of Virginia restoration projects, George Washington’s Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens and Green Spring Gardens. Tour attendees also are encouraged to stop by the historic Ramsay House at the Alexandria Visitor Center, where the garden is undergoing a major renovation that will create a more accessible and sustainable design to welcome visitors to Old Town Alexandria.
