Ridgely Historic Gardens

Ridgely Gardens is a mountainside property overlooking the historic town of Clifton Forge, Virginia.  Beginning in 1902, this two-acre privately-owned garden property was gradually carved into the steep southern face of Fore Mountain in the highlands of Alleghany County. Stone walks, steps, walls, and ponds combined with old boxwood hedges, and defined flowerbeds give the garden structure, dimension and a distinct mountainside ambience.
