This is the oldest Home and Garden Tour in the US having gone on for close to eighty years.  23-25 private gardens will be open to the public.  Most of them will host artists who if they choose to paint a garden will be assigned to one.  Also, the historic town is situated on a scenic stretch of the Delaware river.
