Riverdale Park will host a Historic Home and Garden Tour on Sunday, June
3rd, 2005 from 1 to 5 pm. The tour will feature homes over 100 years old
as well as the spectacular gardens in the town.   Tours of the
Riversdale House will also be incorporated.  Tickets for the tour will
be $10.00 in advance; $12.00 on the tour day.


On Thursday November 2nd, a group of Riverdale Park citizen met to plan
a revival of the   Riverdale Park House Tour.  We decided that we'd like
to highlight historic homes that are 100 years or more old and include
some of the gorgeous gardens in the town.  The tour will begin with an
orientation to the town's history possibly including a slide show- after
which people can tour the selected homes and the Riversdale House.
Discussion of transportation included selecting homes within walking
distance, renting a shuttle bus, and/or finding enough antique cars to
drive people between homes.    


At this point, we have not selected any houses so those of you who have
a house that is 100 years old or a nice garden and would be interested
in participating and opening it for the tour, please give us a call
301-864-3953 or email at llynch at arec.umd.edu or 301-209-1505 or email at
dgriverdalepark at comcast.net.


In addition, volunteers are most welcome either for the planning phase
or on the actual weekend of the tour (June 2nd- 3rd) to help get things
set up and other logistics.   We need people for house selection,
advertising, book preparation, as docents in the houses, etc.... 


The next meeting is planned for January 11th at 7 pm.
