John James Audubon Center
The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove is situated on a historic 18th-century site, the farm where John James Audubon lived when he first came to America from France. Here, he developed a technique for drawing birds "from live" that would allow him to become one of the world's best-known wildlife artists. The hundreds of life-size portraits of birds contained in his seminal work The Birds of America helped inspire the formation of the National Audubon Society. The site includes the original three-story farmhouse, built in 1762, miles of nature trails along the Perkiomen Creek, and a building, featuring indoor and outdoor exhibits focused on birds, art, and conservation.
