When Gloucester and Mathews were founded in 1651 and 1791 respectively, they were blessed with beautiful waterways where colonists soon built their homes. As a consequence, today’s residents benefit from some very old historic homes, as well as the ancient trees that were planted with them. The book Remarkable Trees of Virginia sought to register the most ancient and largest trees in the Commonwealth. Two of the listed trees are included on this year’s tour as well as several other trees worthy of consideration. “Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” (Kahlil Gibran) Featured properties embody the tour’s theme – Under the Trees.

Proceeds from the event fund the restoration and preservation of Virginia's historic gardens, and provide research fellowships for building comprehensive and ongoing records of historic gardens and landscapes in the Commonwealth.
