Williamsburg's Glorious Gardens

Springtime in Virginia brings the uncurling of the dogwood's ivory and pink blossoms and the visits of intrepid garden fanciers to historic homes. During Historic Garden Week in Virginia, gracious hosts and hostesses open their gardens to the public. What began as a modest way to make money for historic preservation and renovation of grounds and gardens throughout the Old Dominion now attracts hundreds of visitors every April.

This Tuesday, April 19, the Fredericksburg area celebrates Garden Week in Spotysylvania County with "Crossroads of the County," featuring tours of Millbrook, Christ Episcopal Church, Stevenson Ridge and several other locations. In the City of Fredericksburg the St. James House will be open, along with many other historic landmarks. See a full schedule of the Fredericksburg area.

Browse our Books for Garden Week list for a look at some of Virginia's most beautiful gardens and for ideas on creating your own tour-worthy garden.
