The Talbot County Garden Club recently kicked off planning for the 2024 Maryland House & Garden Pilgrimage’s Talbot County Tour. The tour, which invites visitors to several notable private properties, will take place the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend – May 11, 2024. Kim Eckert and Zandi Nammack co-chair the event.
“Our committee is focused on creating an event filled with extraordinary and enjoyable experiences at every stop,” says Eckert. “This year, the Club will be honored to use the proceeds generated by the tour to help restore and preserve two historic churches in Trappe.”
Nammack adds, “We have a fabulous array of properties for you to visit – from a largely untouched house built in the 1700’s to grand sweeping estates to houses packed with unique and creative touches that will inspire you. There is truly something for everyone on this tour.”
Properties on the tour include Canterbury Manor, Ellenborough and a lovely home on Hanson Street (all in Easton) plus Chlora’s Point Farm, Hayfields and Lloyd’s Landing (all in Trappe).
Scotts United Methodist Church and Saint Paul’s Episcopal Church in Trappe will benefit from the tour
