Garden Week Kicks Off in Hill City

Lynchburg, VA - It's Garden Week in the Hill City.

Tuesday there were several events going on around town to celebrate.

You could tour historical homes like the Anne Spencer House or Point of Honor for free.

There were trolley rides to other historical sites too.

It's the 80th annual Garden Week and organizers say it's a great way to learn more about Lynchburg.

"It's very, very educational. Lots of homes were built by noted architects back in the 1920's on Lee Circle and Oakwood place," said Clarkie Epps, of the Lynchburg Garden Club. "It's just a wonderful day for the entire community."

Local artists also painted at some of the gardens so you could check out their work while you walk through.
