Take time to go back to an 18th-century Palace Garden Party "of the mind and the heart." Thomas Jefferson, the last governor to reside at the Palace, opens the gates and invites residents of the colonial community-both gentry and tradespeople alike-to a fun-filled May celebration on the Palace grounds. Guests of the 21st century will wear 18th-century clothing and be fully immersed in the colonial landscape of traditional music, dancing, theatrics, and games.
