Historic Garden Week: Gloucester

April 27, 2019
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Gloucester County's rich history dates from just after the settlement of Jamestown in 1607. Its role during the American Revolution was pivotal. The southern tip of the county's peninsula extends into the York River and is directly across from Yorktown. This prime military vantage point is the location of one of this tour's properties, Little England, built in 1716. Visitors will enjoy access to additional private homes and grounds, including Sweetgrass, a low-country style home which looks across the Severn River to Warner Hall, George Washington's great great grandfather's estate. Also open is Belvinhem Quay, which overlooks Timberneck Creek and boasts an extensive art collection, Abingdon Episcopal Church, the largest Colonial church in Virginia and one of only eight built in the form of a Latin cross, will be the Tour Headquarters.
