20aprAll DayHistoric Garden Week: Richmond - Hampton Gardens Tour

Event Details

In 1915, businessman Abram L. McClellan purchased 98 acres of undeveloped farmland west of downtown Richmond and formed the Hampton Gardens Corporation. Like many residential developments along Cary Street Road in the early 20th century, the neighborhood began as a streetcar suburb. Sited between Patterson Avenue and Cary Street Road in Richmond’s highly desirable Westhampton area, charming and popular Hampton Gardens provides magnificent examples of traditional architecture, including Tudor, Georgian, Federal Revival and mid-century transitional styles surrounded by lush, mature landscaping. This easy walking tour showcases private gardens and outdoor living spaces on Roslyn and Cary Street Roads and Greenway and Oak Lanes. Additionally, tour ticket holders are invited to visit and picnic on the grounds of Wilton, a Garden Club of Virginia restoration site, and also at Tuckahoe, the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson and a National Historic Landmark, with extensive vegetable and pleasure gardens at the height of spring beauty.
