The Richmond Tours are Wednesday, April 22-Friday, April 24. An exciting addition to this year's Tour is our partnership with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as Presenting Sponsor and the Exclusive East Coast Exhibition, "THE ART OF THE FLOWER--Van Gogh, Manet and Matisse."  

Wednesday, April 22, features The Hermitage Road Historic District showcasing an enclave of elegant country estates built between the late 1800s and early 1900s for Richmond's wealthy and prominent families. . Several of these homes were designed by noted architect, D. Wiley Anderson.  Also featured on the Wednesday tour is the Executive Mansion at Capitol Square.  

Thursday, April 23, brings guests to Kingcrest Parkway. Tucked between Grove Avenue and Cary Street Road and just two blocks long, this picturesque street is a mix of architectural styles from Tudor to Colonial to Italianate.  Its ambience is further enhanced by a wide grass median planted with redbud trees. 

Friday, April 24, is the final day of the Richmond tours and runs along the fashionable Cary Street Road corridor.  Visitors will be treated to stately homes and gardens including four and a half acres of park-like gardens on Hillcrest Avenue, the results of a restoration which began in 1991. Two other featured gardens were designed by noted landscape architect Charles F. Gillette. 

Admission Fee: Tickets are $40 in advance, $45 day of tour and $100 for a 3 day ticket
