HOLLIN HILLS, VA — The Hollin Hills Home and Garden Tour, a popular event for fans of mid-century modern architecture, could still happen this year despite postponement during the new coronavirus crisis. The tour is tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The walking tour would have happened on Saturday, May 2. The decision to postpone the event was for the “health and safety of our community and all participants,” the Hollin Hills Home and Garden Tour website stated.
Held by the Civil Association of Hollin Hills, the tour showcases homes in the neighborhood designed by architect Charles Goodman. The community is comprised of over 400 contemporary homes between Richmond Highway and the George Washington Memorial Parkway in southeastern Fairfax County. The first home was completed in 1949, and Hollin Hills transformed into the first community in the DC region to be entirely made up of contemporary homes. It joined the National Register of Historic Places in 2013 and is a Virginia Landmark Historic District.
The last tour in 2018 showcased 10 examples of the architecture, interior design and landscaping that Hollin Hills is known for. The tour is self-guided and may require driving to different portions. Specific houses on the tour will be announced the day of the event.
Tickets purchases from the postponed May 2 event will be automatically transferred to the new Sept. 12 date. For more information, visit www.hollinhillsmodern.com.
