Virginia Garden Tour


The Piedmont Driving Club was honored to participate in the Virginia Garden Week tour of historic homes on April 24 and 25, 2013.  It was a special delight to be asked to exhibit carriages at Leeds Manor, home to PDC members Bob and Leslie Yarborough in Hume, Virginia.  Members brought carriages on both days and drove the lanes of the farm in view of  the hundreds of participants who toured both the gardens and the Manor house.  There could not have been a more perfect setting for our beautifully turned-out horses and carriages.  Always the perfect hosts, the Yarborough’s served Champagne and an array of tasty canapés to all.  The highlight for Club members was a private tour of Leeds Manor, former home to Chief Justice John Marshall.  It was a memory we will long treasure!
