More Information

Add a tour of Thomas Jefferson’s private villa and ornamental gardens to your Lynchburg Garden Day itinerary. An avid gardener and one of America’s first landscape designers, Jefferson was enthralled with the natural world, recording in his letters and journals his ideas for planning and planting the ornamental landscape. The restorations of Jefferson’s ornamental garden and carriage turnaround were made possible through the generosity of the Garden Club of Virginia. Although not an official stop on the Garden Day tour this year, admission to the Poplar Forest grounds is included with your Lynchburg Garden Day ticket. Guided tours of Jefferson’s octagonal villa are available for $8 per person on a first-come, first-served basis as available.

Please note: All visitors are required to maintain social distancing protocols and wear masks while on tours and in public buildings. Due to the changing nature of the COVID-19 protocols, all dates are subject to change, please visit www.poplarforest.org to confirm the date and time of an event.
