Five of Old Town Alexandria's finest private homes and gardens will open to the public as part of Historic Garden Week in Virginia, the nation’s oldest and largest collection of house and garden tours. The homes will feature beautiful floral arrangements created by the members of the Garden Club of Alexandria and the Hunting Creek Garden Club, the tour’s sponsors. This walking tour features private townhomes and secluded gardens located along the tree-lined streets of Alexandria’s historic district, plus refreshments and a marketplace at The Athenaeum. Tour tickets also provide access to two Garden Club of Virginia restoration projects, located at George Washington’s Mount Vernon and Green Spring Gardens. Tour attendees also are encouraged to stop by the Alexandria Visitor Center at historic Ramsay House, where the garden is undergoing a major renovation that will create a more accessible and sustainable design to welcome visitors to Old Town Alexandria.
