Join us on these guided tours of two beautiful, historical properties and gardens in the Germantown section of Philadelphia. We will start our tour at Wyck at 10 am followed by a visit to Awbury Arboretum.
Wyck is a National Historic Landmark house, garden, and farm in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia that served as the ancestral home to one Philadelphia family for nine generations (1690-1973). With the oldest rose garden in America still in its original plan, and a welcoming home furnished with the original Wistar-Haines family's objects, Wyck offers visitors an enchanting historical experience.
Awbury Arboretum Association oversees the 55 acres of free public green space in northwest Philadelphia. The landscape, historically owned and cultivated by the Cope family in the mid-1800s, now provides a vast arrangement of habitats, walking trails, historic houses and watercourse, an agricultural village, and natural play spaces encompassed by an inspiring heritage tree collection and a rolling landscape.Transportation is on your own. An email with travel details will be sent one week prior to the tour.
Please note: Early bird registration is available to PHS Members only, February 27 – March 14, 2019.
