STAUNTON, VA. - Enjoy a taste of Staunton and help celebrate HISTORIC GARDEN WEEK in the beautifully restored gardens of the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum, located at 20 North Coalter St. in Staunton, Virginia, Friday April 17 from 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm. Delight in the sounds of the Tom Harbeck Group while enjoying samples of local cuisine, Virginia wine and craft beer in the Garden.
The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library is one of thirteen historic gardens designated and maintained by The Garden Club of Virginia. Each spring the grounds are on tour for Historic Garden Week for all to enjoy. The original property did not have a garden, but rather outbuildings, functional plantings, and served as grazing land for the family sheep. The gardens were designed after President Wilson’s widow, Edith Bolling Wilson, provided funding to begin the Woodrow Wilson Foundation.
Co-sponsors for the Garden Party event are Union Bank and Trust and John and Cheryl Huggins of Shenandoah Hops. Advance Tickets are $15.00/guest or $18.00/guest on the day of the event and may be purchased at the museum’s President Shop or online HERE.
