Historic Garden Week in Orange Virginia –From Pastures to Parterres

Sponsored by the Dolley Madison Garden Club

Saturday, April 18, 2015 (10 am – 5 pm)

Tickets are $25 in advance and may be purchased at www.vagardenweek.org. Tickets may be purchased on the day of the tour for $30 at any tour location.

This history and garden-focused tour highlights the evolution of farming and architecture along the Spotswood Trail in Orange County, home to Montpelier, the estate of James Madison.  Montpelier’s formal terraced gardens were a restoration project of the Garden Club of Virginia using proceeds of past Historic Garden Week tours.  This year’s tour includes admission to three private homes, gardens and outbuildings and to the Barboursville Ruins, The 1804 Inn (open from 11 am to 3 pm), tasting room, and hospitality center, making for a full day.  The tour features late 18th and early to late 19th century properties, replete with period architecture and artifacts, antique furnishings, and significant art collections.  Gardens range from boxwood lined drives to extensive formal parterre gardens to perennial landscapes. Ticket includes special events at all three private properties:  refreshments served from 2 to 4 p.m., plein air painting by Armand Cabrera from 1 to 4 p.m. (weather permitting), and a display of handmade pottery.

Tour proceeds fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia’s historic gardens.
