The 2017 Gloucester Garden Tour in the Village of Magnolia
Saturday, July 8, 2017
At the dawn of the twentieth century, Magnolia was well known as a vacation destination with a casino and grand hotels. There were posh stores like Tiffany’s lining Lexington Avenue and mansions along Shore Road. Join us on a walk down memory lane for the fifth Generous Gardener’s Garden Tour in the quiet seaside village of Magnolia. This tour includes more than a dozen private gardens including an Olmsted garden. This tour is a varied mix of cottage gardens, rose gardens and estate gardens with glorious ocean views as you stroll along Shore Road. It is predominantly a walking tour (1.6 mile) with a few gardens a short drive from downtown Magnolia.
Tickets are $30 per person. Tickets may be purchased the day of the tour. On the day of the tour, pick up your ticket/booklet with maps and descriptions at the Magnolia Library, 1 Lexington Avenue, Gloucester, MA 01930.
Please no pets. Rain or Shine.
