About us

Wyck Historic House, Garden, Farm is a National Historic Landmark located in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, which served as the ancestral home to the Wistar-Haines family for over nine generations. Here, traditional Quaker culture blended with a passion for innovation. The people who lived and worked at Wyck expressed these values through their commitment to education, horticulture, natural history, and preservation.

The Wyck Association connects this family and its rich history to our community today through programs that focus on history, horticulture, and urban agriculture, using the past as inspiration for the future. We are maximizing the role that our 2.5-acre, 323-year-old site can play in the life of a 21st-century urban neighborhood, using our buildings, landscape, and collections to provide educational, cultural, and nutritional resources for our local community as well as visitors.
