Located in southwest Virginia, the Roanoke Valley is set in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains.This year’s tour takes place in the neighborhoods below Roanoke’s iconic Mill Mountain Star, where visitors will find some of the best examples of renovated “American Four Square” architecture on one of the city’s friendliest streets.. The tour also features a majestic home and gardens sitting on a knoll overlooking the valley. Artwork, antiques and furnishings abound. There is even a little Black Dog Salvage of DIY network fame included since the store is in Roanoke. Ticket includes light refreshments served in a garden setting from 2 to 4 p.m. Nearby are Fincastle Presbyterian Church and the Beale Memorial Garden at Hollins University, both restoration projects of the Garden Club of Virginia using funds from past Historic Garden Week tours.
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.
