Historic Garden Week in Richmond : Friday
The enduringly popular River Road corridor runs parallel to the James River. The section featured on this shuttle tour lies across the line from the city of Richmond, in close proximity to several private schools, the Country Club of Virginia, the University of Richmond and specialty shopping and dining. One of the oldest and most classic neighborhoods in Henrico County, many architecturally significant "country houses" were built on farmland here when suburban Richmond began to expand westward in the 1910's and 1920's. Stately homes are tucked into the undulating hills and woodlands of this picturesque high ground above the James River. Ticket includes admission to the gardens at Tuckahoe Plantation, the boyhood home of Thomas Jefferson, located a short drive down River Road, west of the tour area.
