History Tours & Presentations


The Greenbrier has been welcoming guests since 1778! With over 230 years of history, The Greenbrier has a wealth of information for you to enjoy during our guided tours. Interior Tours focus on the elegant architecture and interior design of famed interior decorator Dorothy Draper and her successor Carleton Varney.

Exterior Tours offer greater detail about the role of the cottages and conclude at the Presidents' Cottage Museum and Art Colony Shops. From November to March, Historical Presentations are held in the Theatre in place of our Exterior Tours.
