Mathews and Gloucester County Garden Tour is Saturday April 23, 2022. There are two tours to choose from, morning or afternoon.
Exhibiting a maritime-like heritage, all the homes on this tour are situated close to the serene waters of the East River. Four historic properties will be on the tour this year, all close to each other and close to downtown Mathews.
Tour stops include; Christ Episcopal Church on Williams Wharf Lane, Riverlawn and the Riverlawn Cottage, Eastham House, and Samarkand on Woodas Creek.
Other Notable Stops on the tour include :
~Brent and Beckys Bulb’s: Their 8+ acre gardens contain more than 20 “rooms” to demonstrate gardening that celebrates the Chesapeake Bay! A food truck will also be parked at Brent and Beckys this day.
~New Point Lighthouse: The third oldest standing lighthouse in the Bay
~Bay School Cultural Arts Center: Will host several artist that will be painting flower arrangements!
There is much to see along the Chesapeake Bay this up and coming Spring. The weather is warming up and there will be lots to do outside. Mathews County features many historical spots and an equal amount of wildlife preserves, beaches and beautiful little spots to take in nature and its inhabitants.
Our town boasts a lovely Farmers Market on the historic court green every Saturday starting in April, so you can add that to the list of things to make a great Spring weekend in Mathews, Virginia.
