Lost Gardens of the Main Line, 1880-1930

Thursday, March 18 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm

Presented by Jeff Groff, Estate Historian, Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library

Some of the most important estate gardens in America were created on the Main Line in the late 19th century and the years leading up to WWII. Join Estate Historian, Jeff Groff, as he discusses these notable gardens, their different designers and styles—Victorian, French, Italian, and Colonial Revival—and their owners. Most are lost, but historic photos help recapture these elaborate gardens and their history. Estates that are featured include Dolobran and Allgates in Haverford, Bloomfield in Villanova, Penshurst in Penn Valley, and Timberline in Bryn Mawr.
