Noon - 6:00 pm
Rain or shine

Hollin Hills, the award-winning mid-century modern neighborhood in Alexandria, VA, will host a House & Garden Tour on Saturday, April 28, 2018. This self-guided walking tour will showcase stunning examples of mid-century modern architecture and landscape.

The 326-acre neighborhood south of Old Town was built from the late 1940s to the early 1970s by developer Robert Davenport and renowned architect Charles Goodman. Hollin Hills was the first community in the Washington, DC Metro area to be made up entirely of contemporary homes.

Recognized many times in the past for its architectural and design vision, Hollin Hills was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013, and is a Virginia Landmark Historic District.

What is the tour route?

The tour is self-guided and features houses and gardens that are located throughout the neighborhood. Our volunteers will recommend a cluster of houses and gardens for you to start your tour, and you may visit these houses and gardens in any order. Given the size of our neighborhood, you may find it easier to drive from one cluster to another. Please note, we do not make public the list of houses or gardens prior to the tour.

Any additional information I should know about attending the tour?

In an effort to protect the floors of the homes, attendees will be required to wear booties inside all of the homes. The booties - disposable covers that go on easily over your shoes - will be provided complimentary.

Photography of home interiors will be allowed at select homes. Please refer to signage at the entrance of each home and if you are unsure, please feel free to ask a docent.

Where do the funds raised from the tour go?
