Hickory – Each May the Hickory Landmarks Society hosts an Annual Romance of the Garden Tour fund raising event, a Hickory home and garden tour. Thanks to the kindness of selected property owners, HLS has been fortunate to showcase over 170 of Hickory’s finest architectural buildings and gardens in the past 26 years. This years tour is Saturday, May 22, from 9 am-4 pm.
