We're off to visit two very different houses and three different gardens. The impressive Greek Revival edifice at Morven Park was home to one of Virginia's Governors. This mansion includes their amazing collection of tapestries, and a history of Virginia's foxhunting heritage. We will also visit the Carriage Museum and the formal terraced boxwood gardens established in early 1900s. Next we move on to the Marshall House, home of General Marshall and his wife. This house retains its 19th century architectural points and the 1950s decor as when the Marshall's resided there. General and Mrs Marshall were both gardeners. We will walk to the Aylesbury Tea Room for our British style Afternoon tea party set in an 1880 stone cottage. We will round out our afternoon with a visit to the beautiful Loudoun County Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens.
