“Explore the Treasure of Kinsale” is the theme of this tour in Westmoreland County. The oldest municipal entity in the Northern Neck region, Kinsale was created in 1706 by the House of Burgesses. A quaint village, it boasts a thriving marina, a wharf, a museum, a restored early 1900s ice cream parlor and a gazebo on The Green. Much the same as in colonial days, the area is supported by farmers and watermen.

This tour of five private properties reflects life in town, on a plantation and by the water, spanning 230 years of Virginia history. Located 12 miles from the Chesapeake Bay, the tour area is near Ingleside Vineyards, Westmoreland State Park and Virginia’s Northern Neck wine trail. Stratford Hall, a restoration project of the Garden Club of Virginia using proceeds from past Historic Garden Week tours, is also nearby.
