The Women's Club of Hagerstown to Hold its 9th House and Garden Tour on Saturday, June 1st

The Women's Club of Hagerstown to Hold its 9th House and Garden Tour on Saturday, June 1st

(HAGERSTOWN, MD) -- Eight historic houses will be featured in this year's House and Garden Tour, beginning with the Women's Club Headquarters at 31 South Prospect Street.
Three of the houses are located on South Prospect, within walking distance of the Women's Club, including a Victorian Gothic cottage, a carefully renovated, prize-winning Queen Ann style home, and a third house, painstakingly renovated to incorporate original details and furnishings appropriate to its 1893 construction.
Still in Hagerstown, two houses on Oak Hill Avenue known as "sister houses," were built in 1914 for sisters. Similar in style, the interiors replicate the style of the period, and the taste of the owners who currently live in them. Here, too, family heirlooms and furniture and textiles create warm and comfortable homes for their owners.
Charm envelops the visitor a tiny cottage on Sharpsburg's Main Street, and in addition to the art-filled house, the owner has built a world-class terraced garden on the rock that abuts his house.
The country life is beautifully illustrated on Hopscotch Lane in Hagerstown, in a house built in 1769 and surrounded on three sides by the Antietam Creek. A creek-side pavilion adds outdoor entertaining space. Greeting the visitor are wonderfully shaggy - and friendly - Scottish Highland Cows.
The tour will be held on Saturday, June 1, from 10 am to 4 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the Women's Club, and at each of the houses on the tour. Tickets for the entire tour of eight houses are $20, and individual tickets can be purchased at the house for $5.
The Women's Club will provide lunch at the Club's building at 31 South Main Street for a cost of $7. For more information call the Woman's Club at 301-739-0870.
