Historic Garden Week Tour Staunton/Augusta County

Saturday, April 18th 2015 - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
at Staunton, Virginia
1329 Commerce Rd.

Staunton is one of Virginia’s most celebrated preservation success stories. Located at the city’s edge, just minutes from downtown, are several well-conserved properties surrounded by rolling green fields and sweeping views. Each of the farms and estates on this year’s tour has a deep connection with the area’s historic and cultural roots. These 200+ acre properties are anchored by landmark residences in the Federal, Tudor Revival and French Eclectic styles with construction dates ranging from the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries. These working farms showcase the many ways in which the owners are farming and conserving the land via easements, cattle, poultry/eggs, community-supported agriculture (CSA), even beekeeping. Live music and speakers discussing the topics of land conservation and the area’s agricultural heritage are included in the tour experience. A catered box luncheon will be offered.
