Northumberland County - Northern Neck
Heathsville Historic District is located in Northumberland County, Virginia. Established in 1681 and surveyed by Benjamin Latrobe, this rural village has remained the county seat for over three hundred years. Its shady courthouse square is a stroll away from a pre-Civil War jail, tavern, church, and one of the largest extant assemblages of antebellum buildings in Virginia. Equally as important, Heathsville is a vibrant community based in the 18th century but living in the 21st. Tour includes access to five private homes c. 1770 to 1933. They showcase how historic homes can be as functional today as when they were originally built.
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.
