Overview

Take a scenic boat ride down the Schuylkill River to tour the in-progress restoration of the 1731 house and the first major garden renovation at Bartram’s Garden in nearly 100 years. Learn about the history, the design process for restoration, and 21st c. upgrades being introduced to the garden and historic buildings. (I would like to ask SRDC if they could take the tour group by boat to the site. We can then take a bus back from the site. If this doesn’t work, then replace the first sentence with “Travel to southwest Philadelphia to tour the in-progress restoration of the 1731 house and the first major garden renovation at Bartram’s Garden in nearly 100 years.”
