Historic Garden Day

Historic Garden in Fredericksburg, Virginia – A walking tour of 5 stately private homes and beautiful gardens in Fredericksburg’s Historic District. Come and see the many gorgeous floral arrangements which complement the homes’ interior decor.

Lower Caroline Street (the 100-300 blocks) is one of the most prestigious residential neighborhoods in Fredericksburg’s 40-block National Historic District. It has been home to prominent figures locally, as well as in Virginia’s and our nation’s history. Lower Caroline’s stately dwellings have pedigrees that stretch as far back as 1764, yet they exist harmoniously with modern additions to the street. Its handsome line-up of homes is distinguished by diverse architectural styles and well-manicured historic landscapes, several of which front the tranquil Rappahannock River. With the encouragement of a residential bulb enthusiast, this corner of the city boasts an impressive display of spring tulips, which will delight Historic Garden Week visitors.

Free and ample parking at Dixon Park, 1300 Dixon Street, with regular, all-day shuttle service to tour area minutes away.

Ticket includes admission to the 5 homes and gardens, and special activities including floral demonstrations, horticulture exhibit, Bartlett Tree Experts giving talks on boxwoods and woody plants in historic gardens, and “ask the arborist.”

This tour is in downtown Fredericksburg, just blocks from many restaurants and shops.
Tour HQ is located in the 200 block of Princess Elizabeth Street between Caroline & Princess Anne Streets.
