Six homes and Marie Bowen Gardens included on Petersburg Garden Club's Historic Garden Day Tour
High Street with the expansive front lawn. The Strachan-Harrison House was built by Halcott Pride in 1760 atop a rise overlooking the Appomattox River. This Dutch Colonial is a standout since it is all red with a red tin roof. The builder bequeathed the house to his daughter, Mrs. Alexander Strachan, and it remained in the family until 1860 when it was sold to the Harrisons. In 1936, the Harrisons deeded the house to Grace Church, which occupied the front yard and the home was used as a parish house. The church was torn down in 1959 and the home and land went to private owners.
The home is a two-story structure that is only one room deep and six rooms wide. Most of the heart pine floors, single-board wainscoting, locks, moldings, and doors are original. The home has numerous dependencies: a carriage house, potting shed, barn with fenced pasture, gazebo, and guest house.
Large, aged boxwood and numerous specimen plants surround the two-acre residence.

Petersburg, Fort Lee celebrate Earth Day at Patton Park
U.S. Army Garrison Fort Lee joined forces to take on a river cleanup beautification project at Patton Park in Petersburg along the historic Appomattox River on Earth Day, Friday, April 22.
The river cleanup took place place within Patton Park from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
This was a great opportunity to get outdoors and volunteer time in stewardship of a public park. Hand pickers, trash bags, and gloves were provided for those who wanted to get their hands dirty.
The beautification project will consist of creating two rain gardens within the park as well as planting perennial flowers, which will return year after year.
The rain gardens will capture a portion of rainwater runoff, facilitate infiltration, decrease erosion, and filter pollutants such as phosphorus, nitrogen, and sediment from entering the river.
The flowers will generate a welcoming presence within the green space and attract beneficial wildlife such as pollinating insects which will enable the Appomattox ecosystem to function at an optimal level.
