Historic Garden Week: Gloucester-Mathews County

April 21, 2018
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Learn the countless stories behind the artifacts, heirlooms and unique building materials of three properties with magnificent river views on this driving and shuttle tour. Tour Auburn, the plantation featured on the cover of the 2018 guidebook. Built in 1824, the property was once owned by Charles Heath, father of the daffodil industry in Gloucester, and later, in the 1970s, by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Visit another home from the same period featuring whimsical touches and interesting gardens, and a newer home filled with original art collected and created by its owner. Lunch is available at Brent & Becky's Bulbs, making for a full day.
