Autumn Pilgrimage House Tour

9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Autumn Pilgrimage House Tour is always a big event, as the doors of many of our nation's most historic homes are opened to the public for one day. The parish's original structure was built on Historic Westover in the early 1600s soon after the settlement of Jamestown. It was dismantled and reconstructed on its present site on Herring Creek in 1730. Westover Church's 2016 tour of historic Charles City homes and gardens, some open for the first time and for this day only, will be held on Saturday, September 17th, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. visit
