Council of Historic Richmond
The Council prepares its members to be ambassadors for Historic Richmond through self-enrichment gained from programs, tours, research projects and attendance at educational events sponsored by the Council and Historic Richmond. The Council supports a yearly bus trip for membership to gain exposure to various historic properties.
Every year, the Council hosts Historic Garden Day for the Garden Club of Virginia’s Richmond territory. The Council also works with historic neighborhoods to create a walking tour of notable historic homes, where Council members serve as tour guides and hostesses.
