House & Garden Tour

Bexley Women's Club

Annual House & Garden Tour

After a year featuring only gardens on our tour, Bexley Women's Club invites you to tour the interiors and exteriors of 6 beautiful Bexley homes on Sunday, June 5th from 10am - 4pm. In addition, two spectacular private gardens, an urban park and other sites of interest will be open. We will be following all applicable city COVID advisories during the tour.

The tour relies on many volunteers to make it happen. If you are interested in helping with this year's Tour please click on "Be a Volunteer!" on the right side of this page for signup information.

The annual Bexley House & Garden Tour is not just to show some of the amazing history and homes in Bexley, but it is also our main fundraising event for the Bexley Women's Club Scholarships.

Bexley Women's Club has awarded over 915 Scholarships totaling over $570,000 to students in the Bexley area. The House & Garden Tour is a large part of what makes this possible.

Over 200 volunteers are required to staff the tour. Volunteer opportunities exist almost all year round. Whether you are a member of the Bexley Women's Club, just want to volunteer, or want to become a sponsor, your help is welcome and needed!
