The 2017 Homes Tour weekend of June 9, 10, and 11, 2017 will have some amazing opportunities for our guests. On Friday night, our Gala will be at the new home of Angus Peyton. His hill top eyrie provides magnificent views to the far away mountains and cool breezes across the patios. Ticket holders will enjoy both as well as wine and hors d’oeuvres.
On Saturday, the traditional tour of homes will include a former girls dormitory, now a stately home; a former art gallery that retains its graciousness; a home that has survived war and floods and still welcomes visitors; and the Presidents’ House Museum at the Greenbrier as well as another historic cottage if available.
On Sunday, St. Thomas Episcopal Church in White Sulphur Springs will welcome guests to its historic sanctuary for two separate sessions (2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.), to view folk art paintings and have afternoon tea. A special presentation by Neely Seams portraying Medal of Freedom winner Katherine Johnson will offer insight into her life in White Sulphur Springs and beyond.
