The Glebe House Museum & Gertrude Jekyll Garden proudly offers a number of programs that allow you to experience history first hand.​

Personalized tours & education 


Schools and Children's Groups

We are happy to work with children of all ages and their teachers or leaders to design appropriate programs. Groups may sign up for a general tour (30 minutes), a hands-on tour (60 minutes), or an in-depth workshop (90 minutes).


Garden Clubs, Church Groups, and other Adult Groups

Groups of up to 45 people are easily accommodated in tours which last 1 to 1-1/2 hours focusing on 18th century life, Episcopal Church history, or the Gertrude Jekyll garden.


Outreach (Coming Soon!)

We'll come to your group meeting with a slide presentation emphasizing Colonial History, the Jekyll Garden, or the birth of the Episcopal Church in Amerca at the Glebe House.
