Green Spring GardenFamilies occupied and adapted the Green Spring landscape and buildings from the late 1700s until the mid-20th century. Today visitors can walk among the gardens, register for educational programs or garden tours, enjoy family-friendly activities, view changing art exhibits, enjoy tea at the Historic House, and shop in the unique plant and gift shops. The gardens are always changing, so come back often. For information, call 703-642-5173.
