Historic Garden Week in Warrenton

May 01, 2019 10:00 am - May 02, 2019 05:00 pm
Location: PEC Headquarters, 45 Horner Street, Warrenton, Virginia

The Warrenton Garden Club biannually hosts tours of Fauquier County homes and gardens during Historic Garden Week in Virginia. Tour proceeds help fund the restoration of Virginia's historic gardens and provide graduate level research fellowships. In celebration of the Garden Club of Virginia 2020 Centennial, funds have also been pledged to support Virginia State Parks. ​

Conservation and preservation have been central to The Warrenton Garden Club and The Garden Club of Virginia from the beginning. The 2019 driving and shuttle tour of four historic properties highlights the benefits of protected lands and perpetual open easements, juxtaposed between rolling Piedmont hills and the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west and bustling urban and suburban centers to the east. Within this bucolic setting is a thriving equestrian community, which visitors will experience while touring the stable and sand-riding arena at Folly Hill Farm. The tour headquarters, located in Old Town Warrenton, in contrast, showcases a native plant garden specifically designed for an urban setting and offers easy access to local restaurants and shopping.

Tour Headquarters, 45 Horner Street

Located in Warrenton since 1972, the PEC office headquarters underwent a major renovation and expansion in 2014 that included the reuse of the existing structure, a high performance building envelope made of locally available and formaldehyde-free materials, recycled content materials, low-VOC paints, low-flow plumbing fixtures, LED lighting and a geothermal heating system. Great care was taken to maintain the integrity and appearance of the historic section of the house, which was initially constructed in 1784 and once owned by Civil War cavalry commander John Mosby. Only the original 18th century structure is visible from the sidewalk directly in front of the building to complement the historic appearance of Old Town Warrenton. The renovation also includes native flowers, shrubs and trees planted around the office. The garden features dogwood and oak trees, boxwood and a pollinator garden. To reduce stormwater runoff, the gutters and drains feed to swales and rain gardens. The garden was specifically designed to demonstrate how native plants can be useful and attractive within an urban setting.
