Blandwood Mansion Tours
All tours of Blandwood Mansion are led by trained docents, who will guide you through the restored main building including the rooms associated with the 1795 farmhouse, the 1822 addition, and the 1846 A.J. Davis Italianate addition.
Tours of Blandwood also include the two reconstructed dependencies: Governor Morehead’s Law Office and the Kitchen. Both buildings were recreated in 1984 using the original plans and archaeological evidence.
The Blandwood Gardens are open daily and include a variety of native plants and trees. In 1844 the grounds at Blandwood were featured in A. J. Downing’s landscape guide A Treatise on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening Adapted to North America. Today the remaining original elements of that design are the sweeping drive, decorative urns, and feature plants that characterize Victorian era gardens.
Blandwood is located at 447 West Washington Street in Greensboro.
Blandwood is open year-round, Tuesday – Saturday 11am-4pm & Sunday 2pm – 5pm with the exception of major national holidays.
The last tour begins 30 minutes prior to closing.
Please note that Blandwood only offers guided tours, led by trained docents. During our regular hours of operation tours are available on a walk-up basis. If a tour has started prior to your arrival, it may be necessary for you to wait until its completion to start your tour. Generally a tour of Blandwood lasts 45 minutes to one hour.
