My next column will be on the upcoming New Windsor Heritage Committee Summer's End Home and Garden Tour on September 10, 2016 from 1:00 to 5:00p.m.

I interviewed Frank Batavick by email and one of the great resources he provided me about the event is this press release about the tour.

Sadly, many of my print stories have not been making it to the web – but if it does, it will be located here: http://www.carrollcountytimes.com/search/dispatcher.front?Query=Kevin+Dayhoff&target=all&spell=on

New Windsor Heritage is sponsoring a Summer's End Home and Garden Tour on September 10, 2016 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. The event features five historic homes and gardens, a contemporary home with extensive plantings, a restored 1854 school house, an 18th century log house, and a jewel of an 1897 church. Each site will include plein air artists working in a variety of media, and Master Gardeners will be on-hand to answer questions about the gardens on tour and attendees’ own trees, shrubs, and plants.

Homes include an 1813 high-style, Federal era, three story bank house/villa and an early 19th century Piedmont Plantation house. Owners and docents will be on-hand to share each house's history. A special attraction is the Springdale School where a teacher and students in period costumes will conduct lessons derived from 19th century textbooks.

Each visitor will receive a tour booklet containing descriptions of the homes and gardens and a map to the sites. The booklet will serve as a ticket to all of the locations. Admission is $15 per person, and children under 12 are free. 

Fees may be paid on the day of the tour starting at 12:45 p.m. at the New Windsor Heritage Museum, 207 Main Street, right next to New Windsor State Bank. Drinks, snacks, and rest room facilities will be available.

For additional information about the tour and the houses and gardens featured, please contact Dori or Frank Batavick at 410-848-5263.
