From the Museum District Association:
Now in its 24th year, the 2018 Museum District Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour provides a rare opportunity for guests to go inside some of Richmond’s most beautiful and historic homes, gardens, and institutions. Be sure to take advantage of the tour trolley that will run continuously from 1-6PM, making stops near the homes on the tour and the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.
The Mother’s Day House & Garden Tour is not just about beautiful homes; each year, proceeds from this event are reinvested in our neighborhood for maintenance, beautification, and enhanced safety. The tour also supports neighborhood local nonprofit organizations. Previous recipients have included Albert Hill Middle School, William Fox Elementary PTA, T. J. Viking Fund (Thomas Jefferson High School), PAL-Prevent A Litter Veterinary Hospital, ACTS, Health Brigade (formerly Fan Free Clinic), EnRichmond Foundation (for the benefit of Humphrey Calder Park), Friends of the Belmont Library, and the FRIENDS Association for Children. In 2017 we also established the MDA Educational Scholarship Fund.
Thank you for your interest in this special event.
