Begin your art-filled tour day in the garden at Cedars Bed & Breakfast, the tour headquarters and refreshment area. Vintage cars highlight the walk to the homes and gardens on Burns Lane. The first home is known today as Bel-Mede. It was built near Wakefield in 1770 and was moved to Williamsburg in 1947 by a William and Mary art professor to become the first house on the newly subdivided Burns Farm. A woodland walk, knot garden and art collections are focal points for these properties. Top floral designers join Williamsburg Garden Club members to create the “Art in Bloom” fine art and flower show at the Muscarelle Museum of Art. Visiting lecturers will discuss botanical art and landscape design throughout the day at the Swem Library, which also features an art collection. A cafe is conveniently located in the library.

Admission Fee: $50 Full price, $40 Advance
