Co-hosted by The Council of Historic Richmond and The Garden Clubs of Richmond.
Located in the Ginter Park Historic District, this turn-of-the-century residential neighborhood located in Richmond’s northside is characterized by wide boulevards running north and south, and large residential lots.
Seminary Avenue offers a surprising variation of architectural styles, ranging from modest Queen Anne cottages to stately Colonial Revival mansions. Formal, tree-lined streets and sidewalks are found throughout the district and were part of the initial community planning begun by Major Lewis Ginter in the 1890s. One of Richmond’s first streetcar suburbs, it was conceived and planned by this prominent Richmond industrialist and philanthropist of the late 19th century.
The tour includes six private homes/gardens on Seminary Avenue and the Ginter Park Woman’s Club.
