Stevenson Ridge Bloomed for Historic Garden Day

The Rappahannock Valley Garden Club had a successful turn-out for the "Crossroads of Spotsylvania" tour held on Tuesday.  We were amazed that over 600 tourists visited Stevenson Ridge coming from as far as Kentucky and Georgia.  Flowers were showcased in the Riddick House, Servants Quarters, and Spy Hill House.  We would like to thank the hostesses for sharing the history of our antique homes.  It was a lot of fun seeing others take an interest in our historic preservation.

Come by to enjoy the beauty of our 87 acre property and take in the horticulture exhibits in the Servants Quarters and the Spy Hill House. The Riddick House, which was originally built in 1812 and restored in 2006 to its original condition, will be decorated by the Garden Club. You won’t be disappointed by the natural beauty of the serene woods and pond that these houses look out onto.
