HISTORIC GERMANTOWN HAS A RELAXED, BACKYARD FEEL.
BUT OUR HISTORY WASN'T ALWAYS THIS WAY.
IT’S WHERE ONE OF PHILADELPHIA’S REVOLUTIONARY WAR BATTLES WAS FOUGHT.
WHERE THE FIRST-EVER AMERICAN PROTEST AGAINST SLAVERY WAS WRITTEN.
WHERE A HOUSE ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD STILL STANDS.
WHERE THE STORY OF EVERY KIND OF FREEDOM IS TOLD . . .
. . . IN UNIQUELY PERSONAL TERMS.
JUST MINUTES FROM DOWNTOWN PHILADELPHIA.
Explore Freedom's Backyard
We invite you to visit the nations longest National Historic District, where the stories of American freedom are told in uniquely personal terms.

Celebration of the Roses
Saturday, May 30, 2015 | 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM | Free
Wyck’s circa-1820 Rose Garden is a living treasure featuring 50+ heritage roses. Call them heritage, heirloom, antique or old, these types of roses have stronger fragrances and often brighter colors than modern roses, and they bloom only a short while. If you’ve never been to Wyck before, this is the time to come! Enjoy a lush, glorious sensory experience! Light refreshments, such as rose tea, children’s activities, and contests will be offered.
