The Headley House at Long Green
With much enthusiasm, Blue Ridge Hospice and The Little Garden Club of Winchester are collaborating to present Winchester Showhouse & Gardens 2013. This exciting project will be open to the public for tours from September 7 – 29 at Long Green, the 18th and 19th century stone home of the Headley family just northwest of Winchester. Long Green is well known for its history and was a popular gathering spot where the Headley family held antique auctions. Built in several sections, circa 1760 and in the 1800s, the stately stone and brick home commands a sweeping view of the countryside.
The Winchester Showhouse & Gardens 2013 will transform 18 spaces (interior rooms and porches) at Long Green into unique and decorative reflections of interior designers, while the property’s lawns and gardens will also be professionally and extensively landscaped. Once complete, features installed by the designers will be offered for sale as will landscape items. Boutique shopping and a café will also be available on the grounds.

About Blue Ridge Hospice
Blue Ridge Hospice is a not-for-profit healthcare organization founded in 1981 by two local residents who strongly believed in providing patients with life-limiting illnesses the right of choice in determining their course of care. Blue Ridge Hospice now serves eight counties and the City of Winchester, providing compassionate care for our patients. Serving more than 200 patients a day, Blue Ridge Hospice provides care in homes, nursing facilities, hospitals, and in our inpatient care center. Blue Ridge Hospice provides hospice care regardless of a patient’s financial ability. In 2012, Blue Ridge Hospice absorbed more than $350,000 in charity care.
