This garden designed by Bill Noble is on the 2020 tour


Six properties will take you into the hills and down to the river in a celebration of Norwich’s landscape. The tour starts at the Society on Main Street in Norwich. Tour goers can choose their own route, or stay on the path suggested. 



See an exciting transformation of a hillside home by a local architectural firm; admire a stately historic farm that has been in the family for 200 years; take a woodland walk along the Connecticut; visit a home full of antiques nestled into the woods by a pond; and enjoy a conservatory filled with sunshine and plants.

There are beautiful gardens throughout the tours. Some of the owners have designed and maintained their gardens themselves and others have professional design and help. All of them are delightful and settle into Norwich’s landscape.  Homeowners, gardeners, and volunteers will be on hand at each house to answer questions and provide information about each property.

Here’s how it works:

Tickets are available ahead of time by using the form below. Pick them up on the day of the tour at the Historical Society, 277 Main Street. Please do not arrive at the houses early as the volunteers will not be ready to let you in. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase.

Begin your tour at the Historical Society where you get your map, wristband, and instructions. Then visit the houses in whatever order you wish. Docents are on hand to welcome you and share history of the houses.
