Members of the public will have an opportunity to visit the Virginia Executive Mansion’s Charles Gillette Garden during Historic Garden Week, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced. The garden will be among the many open statewide in honor of the event, which concludes April 30.
“I hope Virginians will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to visit and enjoy Garden Week this Friday,” Youngkin said in a statement. “The Executive Mansion and Charles Gillette garden are true historic treasures.”
The mansion, along with the renowned Gillette garden, will be open for visitors on Friday, April 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Virginia Executive Mansion, built in 1813, is the oldest continuously occupied governor’s home in the United States built for that purpose.
