In 2008, Bexley Women’s Club held the first House & Garden Tour. 2017 will mark the 10th Annual Tour event. The Tour has become the primary source of funding for the BWC Scholarship Fund.
The 2017 BWC House & Garden Tour is Sunday June 4, 2017.
- From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. some of the most beautiful homes & gardens in the Bexley area are open to tour. The tour has become a destination for people from all over Ohio.
