This year's garden tour will showcase 10 docented gardens in the central area of the town, including the Shepherd family private cemetery which is rarely open to the public. Established in 1776, the cemetery contains the graves of the town's founder, Thomas Shepherd, and over 30 of his descendants. The last burial here was in 1941. Also on the tour this year is the public garden at the 1790 Entler Hotel. The garden grounds in- elude the Rumsey Boat House, where visitors can view a half- scale replica of the first working steamboat that James Rumsey launched'on the Potomac River at Shepherdstown in 1787.

This year's vendors will be of- fering original paintings and prints, jewelry, garden statuary and birdhouses, unique contain- ers, and plants. Outdoor vendors will be located on King Street, across from the Library, and in- door vendors will be located in the War Memorial Building and at the Entler Hotel. Vendors will be offering their wares during the tour hours each day. The presentations and demon- strations by garden experts will be on Saturday only, at the Entler Hotel.
