Bartram's Home & Garden
John Bartram purchased 102 acres from Swedish settlers in 1728, and systematically began gathering the most varied collection of North American plants in the world. Today his botanic garden is the oldest surviving in North America. Bartram co-founded the American Philosophical Society with his friend Benjamin Franklin, and his garden was a source of inquiry and pleasure for luminaries like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. His home also stands on the property.
