Presented by The Garden Club of Virginia

Virginia’s wonderful Historic Garden Week is back this year and on Tuesday, April 20, you can enjoy a lovely drive through historic Prince George County, Petersburg and Hopewell. Included this year will be a lovely woodland garden filled with native plants, wildflowers & a huge collection of ferns all sheltered by 100-year old beech trees (1600 Beechwood Dr.); an 1899 farm (Barns of Kanak) that is now a gorgeous wedding/event venue (5503 Ruffin Rd.); Merchants Hope Church, the parish was originally established in 1657 (11500 Merchants Hope Rd); a beautiful home overlooking the James River (9772 Jamescrest Dr.), and the Prince George County Regional Heritage Center (6406 Courthouse Rd.), housed in the County’s historic courthouse, and shares the stories of one of the oldest counties in Virginia. Of particular interest is a fascinating gallery about the immigration of the many Czech & Slovak families who settled in this region on abandoned farms just after the Civil War. Weston Manor on the Appomattox in Hopewell will be open (400 Weston Lane in Hopewell) as will Centre Hill (1 Centre Hill Court in Old Towne Petersburg). Face masks will be required throughout the tour, inside and outside. Tickets must be purchased in advance and you can get a 10 am- 1:30 pm tour or a 1:30 pm – 5 pm tour. Purchase tickets at:
