Bartram’s Garden

Philadelphia, 19143 United States

Vernacular or Folk Architecture at Bartram’s Garden — Outbuildings and the Bartram House

Bartram’s Garden preserves a varied collection of stone farm buildings — built, remodeled, and reused over centuries. Local stone buildings from the 1730s to the 1850s can be found at Bartram’s Garden.

This tour will explore the various uses and alterations of these farm and garden buildings, put up over the years by the Bartram family and their neighbors. Both outbuildings and the Bartram House show a variety of building techniques and reflect Quaker folk buildings in Kingsessing township, Philadelphia.

Led by Bartram’s Garden Curator Joel Fry.
