STAUNTON, VIRGINIA—The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library today announced that the crew of the PBS series “Road Trip to History” will film at the Presidential Library this Sunday, May 17, for a documentary about Virginia’s historic gardens. The filming will include a 1920’s Garden Party at 3:00 p.m. with guests in period costume and live 1920’s music from the Rhonda Sager Trio of Strasburg, Virginia. “Road Trip to History” is produced by Oak Tree Productions of Kearneysville, West Virginia, in conjunction with Virginia and West Virginia Public Television.
The Presidential Library’s terraced boxwood gardens below President Wilson’s Birthplace, the Presbyterian Manse, were designed in 1933 as one of the early restoration projects of The Garden Club of Virginia. The gardens are maintained and have been improved over the years by The Garden Club of Virginia and are featured as part of the Club’s Garden Week tours each April.
Those interested in more information about the Garden Party or the filming should contact Barbara Wimble, Manager of Visitor Services at the Presidential Library, at (540) 885-0897, ext. 106, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
