Woodruff Place began back in the early 1870s when a man named James O. Woodruff laid out a grand plan for 77 acres of quiet wooded area just easy of Indianapolis. His plan called for homes and gardens reflecting a variety of architectural styles. Today, Woodruff Place remains as a beautiful place to see and celebrate. You have the opportunity to do so this weekend with the 2013 Woodruff Place Home and Garden Tour.
If you sign up for the tour, you will be able to visit seven homes, as well as the newly refurbished Town Hall. Don’t spend all of your time just in the homes, however, as you won’t want to miss the three gardens full of fountains and beautiful statues. In addition, you can enjoy live entertainment and a vintage fashion show at 2:00 p.m. both days.
The Woodruff Place Tour times are from noon to 5:00 p.m. on both Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30. You can purchase tickets on the day of the tour for $15, but you can also click here to order in advance online and only have to pay $12 per ticket. If you are a fan of beautiful scenery and architecture, this is one of the best events of the year for you. A visit to Woodruff Place is a step back in time to the beautiful roots of the past.
