James River Sets The Scene For House Tour
Westover Episcopal Church in Charles City is offering an opportunity to visit some of the most historic homes along the James and the home of a former governor.
From 1 until 5 on Saturday, the church is going to be raising money to support its outreach efforts. For Westover Church that means, among other things, the Meals on Wheels program.
Heistand: We presently feed about 44 people every day; without Meals on Wheels, they wouldn't be able to stay in their homes. They wouldn't be able to eat healthy meals.
The Reverend Virginia Heistand, Rector of historic Westover Church.
There is a difference for this 16th annual House Tour.
Christian: We are having houses on the south side of the James River, Brandon, Coggins Point and Merchant Hope Church, and that's in addition to River Point, which is the home of former governor Doug Wilder, Sherwood Forest, Westover Plantation, the grounds at Shirley Plantation and of course, of our own Westover Church.
And, Tour Chair Jack Christian added, the day ends with a barbecue. Learn more online at westoverepiscopalchurch.org.
