Historic Garden Week in Virginia is one of the largest open houses in the country and a much cherished event. This year the Gloucester tour will showcase three homes and one fabulous garden in Ware Neck. Ware Neck, a narrow body of land bordered on one side by the Ware River and the other by the North River, is in Gloucester County. Visitors will enjoy this tour showcasing a close-knit community with a historic general store and post office, whose early success was due to ties with steamships that once traded at nearby Hockley Wharf. Three private homes in this quaint community with unique and varied architecture and spectacular river views are included: Glen Roy, an Antebellum mansion and one of the most elegant historic properties in Gloucester; The Lighthouse, an eight-sided, red roofed home in the style of a Chesapeake Bay lighthouse; and The Leigh House, a more contemporary open and airy home with sweeping views of the Mobjack. Also included are the gardens at Belle Terre.
