Historic Garden Day | Carillon
April 27th | 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Cohosted by the Council of Historic Richmond & Garden Club of Virginia. Nestled to the west of Byrd Park is the Carillon neighborhood, named after the Carillon Bell Tower, Richmond’s soaring World War I Memorial built in 1932. The Carillon Neighborhood Historic District is registered as a Virginia Historic Landmark and placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. This vivacious and diverse neighborhood has its roots from a single family farm. After the turn of the century, the Carillon area attracted many of Richmond’s prominent families who hired noteworthy architects of the time such as Duncan Lee, Otis Asbury and landscape architect Charles F. Gillette. A neighborhood association, the Carillon Civic Association, was formed in 1968.
