Virginia's Historic Garden Week

Garden Club Week

Tuesday-Thursday, April 26-28, 2016
10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Visit Westover's rarely-seen interior during the latter half of Virginia's Historic Garden Week! Every April, visitors are welcomed to more than 250 of Virginia's most beautiful gardens, homes and historic landmarks during "America's Largest Open House." This 8-day statewide event provides visitors a unique opportunity to see unforgettable gardens at the peak of Virginia's springtime color, as well as beautiful houses sparkling with fabulous flower arrangements. Westover was featured on the first Historic Garden Week in 1929, and keeping with tradition, will once again open its doors in 2016: three days only, April 26, 27 and 28. From 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. visit http://www.vagardenweek.org.


Autumn Pilgrimage House Tour

Saturday, September 17, 2016
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Autumn Pilgrimage House Tour is always a big event, as the doors of many of our nation's most historic homes are opened to the public for one day. The parish's original structure was built on Westover Plantation in the early 1600s soon after the settlement of Jamestown. It was dismantled and reconstructed on its present site on Herring Creek in 1730. Westover Church's 2016 tour of historic Charles City homes and gardens, some open for the first time and for this day only, will be held on Saturday, September 17th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. visit http://westoverepiscopalchurch.org.
