CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (WROC) — Stop and smell the roses (and hydrangeas, and Bergamots) at the fourth annual Ontario County Historical Society’s Garden Tour.

The tour includes access to four private gardens which were chosen by the historical society in conjunction with the Ontario County Arts Council. Additionally, ticketholders will be able to stroll through the historic 1800s mansion Morgan Samuels Inn and Venue, as well as a developing community farm overlooking Canandaigua Lake called The Woods.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 16. During that time, guests are welcome to stop and chat with the docents and homeowners about the planting, concepts, and upkeep for each garden.
