Mount Sharon Gardens Open Mother’s Day

When: May 13, 2012 from 10:00am to 5:00pm

A rare opportunity to Visit the Mount Sharon Gardens, ten acres of exquisite gardens overlooking 60-mile views of Piedmont Virginia. The garden, regarded as one of the most beautiful private landscapes on the East Coast, features ten integrated spaces, each with its own botanical theme and tastefully accented by pavilions, fountains, pergolas and statuary, creating a private work of art of national significance. A lovely Mother's Day tour for the benefit of Preservation Virginia and the Boys & Girls Club of Orange.

Mount Sharon is the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Seilheimer, Jr. in Orange, Virginia.

Gardens open 10 am to 5 pm rain or shine.  Please remember to wear comfortable walking shoes suitable for grass and uneven terrain.  Rest facilities will be available.  No pets allowed and not handicapped accessible.
