April 22, 2014 Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour

Reminder: Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour May 3

Hope everyone had a good Easter and Passover. I wanted to remind you that the May 3 Hollin Hills House and Garden Tour is fast approaching. Make sure you buy your tickets now if you have not done so already. Beyond the main event of touring 10 homes and gardens, tour organizers will host a pre-tour lecture and a new  “Ask the Expert” opportunity. During the tour, participants will be able to ask a  panel of designers and architects questions on the neighborhood and designs of architect Charles Goodman. The experts’  table will be stationed outside of 7420 Hopa Court.
The lecture, “Early Goodman Architecture and Influences through the Design and Development of Hollin Hills,” will run from 11 am to noon in the Hollin Meadows Elementary School cafeteria. Patrick W. Collins, Chief Architect of the Department of State, Bureau of Overseas Building Operations, and  John A. Burns, Chief Appeals Officer for Cultural Resources in the National Park Service, will discuss the influences on Goodman’s groundbreaking work in Hollin Hills. Collins grew up in the neighorhood and Burns has been a long-time resident.
You will not want to miss this chance to learn more about Hollin Hills.
