2017 Magnolia Tour by Generous Gardeners

Saturday, July 8, 2017 10-4

At the dawn of the twentieth century, Magnolia was well known as a vacation destination with a casino and grand hotels. Exclusive stores like Tiffany’s and magnificent mansions lined Lexington Avenue and Shore Road. Join us on a walk down memory lane for the Fifth Generous Gardener’s Garden Tour in the quiet seaside village of Magnolia. Stroll along Shore Road viewing over a dozen private gardens, many with glorious ocean views. This tour showcases a variety of cottage gardens, rose gardens, estate gardens and also includes an amazing Olmsted garden. It is predominantly a walking tour (1.6 miles) with a few gardens a short shuttle bus ride from downtown Magnolia.

Tickets are $30 per person. Tickets may be purchased in advance here, or on the day of the tour. On the day of the tour, pick up your ticket/booklet with maps and descriptions at the Magnolia Library, 1 Lexington Avenue, Gloucester, MA 01930.

Please no pets. Rain or Shine.

  • Quite a history there indeed and has grown so much since I was back that way it is beautiful out there! Thanks for the walk back! 🙂 Dave

    I can say the house we rented in Laneville was a turn of the century one, and there were others as well some came along in the 1920-1930’s and later also! Of course it is all fixed up now believe built in (1900)! But the memories live on!

    The memories you have of all the beauty and people who were residents or coming down during summer to fill the summer cottages!

    Fond Memories of Kenny from Kenny Market loved the stringed hotdogs (me) :-), Fred Sarri’s store, comics, baseball cards and bubble gum penny candy and wise potato chips and ding dongs 🙂 store and McPhersons store heading up toward Andrews corner…

    Remember this? 🙂 Dave & Kim 🙂
